Safeguarding Statement

The vast majority of students attend Gosford Hill School every day without fear for their safety. Indeed, in recent parent surveys, the safety of their children is judged to be very high. However, Gosford Hill recognises its responsibility for Safeguarding and Child Protection and ensures that safeguarding and welfare of students is promoted by focusing on:  

  • Staff recruitment and selection – ensuring that all staff (including volunteers) have been appropriately checked for their suitability through the CRB procedure. 
  • Raising awareness of child protection issues and equipping children with the skills needed to keep them safe. 
  • Developing and implementing procedures for identifying and reporting cases of concern. This may involve sharing information with outside agencies. 
  • Supporting children in accordance with his/her child protection plan. 
  • Establishing a safe and nurturing environment free from discrimination or bullying where children can learn and develop happily. 
  • Preventing students from being drawn into extremism or terrorism by staff at Gosford Hill School following the Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board Procedures.

If a student has a concern, they should speak to a member of staff (tutor, a teacher, a student manager, a teaching assistant, a counsellor) who will then get advice from the staff who oversee safeguarding (designated staff).

Alternatively students can go directly to a designated member of staff. The designated members of staff at Gosford Hill are Mrs Driscoll and Mr O’Regan.
