The Weatheralls Primary School





We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.  As such we expect all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this common commitment.

Our policy applies to all staff, parents, governors, volunteers, visitors and pupils.  A copy of our safeguarding policy, including information on PREVENT, is available to download here.  A hardcopy may be obtained on request from the school office.


The Shade Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is as important as safeguarding against any other vulnerability. 

All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society; everyone should be treated with respect whatever their race, gender, sexuality, religious belief, special need, or disability.  As part of our commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the Government's Prevent Strategy.

All staff and governors have had PREVENT training and are fully aware of the procedures in school and how to refer concerns to the Prevent Lead.
