Safeguarding- A Child Friendly Guide

It's important children know how to stay safe at all times. Our fantastic Year 6s have created and coordinated this page, written for and by children.

Child Friendly Safeguarding Policy

Written by Year 6 pupils


What is Child Protection about?

All of the adults around you think that your health, safety and welfare are very important. In our school, we respect all children, and help to protect your rights. We do our best to help children make good educational progress.

Child-Friendly Peer on Peer Abuse Policy

Written by Year 6 pupils


All grown-ups in school want to make sure that you feel safe and happy whether at school or outside of school. Sometimes adults don’t know if something bad is happening, so you need to tell them.

This policy was written by us and it looks at peer-on-peer abuse and bullying, and what you can do when you feel you are being abused or bullied, or when you notice someone else being abused or bullied.

At West Wycombe, we have lessons and assembles that teach you what peer-on-peer abuse is; teach you what to do if you feel like you are being abused, or if someone else is being abused. Our teachers make sure we know the grown-ups we can speak to if we are worried.

Who to talk to if you have a worry

If you need to talk -our staff will listen. You can talk to any adult in school, but some staff who have a key responsibility for making sure you are safe and well cared for.

Our Senior Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mr Tang.

Our Deputy DSLs are: Mr St Croix and Mrs Rowley



When someone hurts you, it can be called abuse. This is when someone does something to you that is harmful, unpleasant or painful like:

· If someone deliberately hits you, hurts you, injures you or humiliates you.

· If someone says or does something that makes you feel bad about yourself or hurts your feelings which makes you feel scared, sad, upset or frightened.

· If someone shouts, threatens, hits or hurts someone you love whilst you are around which makes you scared, unhappy or worried.

· If someone doesn’t take proper care of you so you feel abandoned, lonely or neglected. You might not be able to eat or wash regularly, or you might not be able to come to school every day or on time.

· If someone touches you in places you know are wrong

· If someone makes you look at things which make you feel ashamed, embarrassed, uncomfortable or guilty. They may ask you to keep it a secret or give you presents.

Abuse is never ok and if you are being or have been abused you must remember –it is not your fault. You must always tell someone and they will help it to stop. If you need to talk –we will listen.
