All the adults in our school work to keep our children safe.
We consider our role in Safeguarding to be critical to ensure the safety of all members of the school community.
We recognise that the use of new technologies presents particular challenges and risks to children both inside and outside of school.
Kingsway Junior School will ensure a comprehensive curriculum response to enable all pupils/students to learn about and manage the associated risks effectively and will support parents and the school community (including all members of staff) to become aware and alert to the needs of keeping children safe online.

Online safety is part of safeguarding and concerns about online safety of pupils, in or out of school, will be passed on to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads using our normal safeguarding procedures.
Keeping Children Safe
At Kingsway, we are committed to ensuring children feel safe, secure and happy. All staff, governors and visitors who come into regular contact with children have undertaken all the relevant safeguarding checks.
We have been talking with classes about staying safe.
Here are some of their responses.
To make us feel safe in school we have.........
''If I am worried, I would talk to Mrs Sansanwal or Mrs Kilroy. Any adult in the school would help me.'' Year 3
''Whenever you feel worried or feel ill, you can get an adult who will help you. If a visitor came into the school, they have to go through the office so we know they are checked in. '' Year 3
'' If I had a worry, I would talk to my teacher because she is a trusted adult.'' Year 4
'' Teachers are in school to protect me. We have fire and lockdown practices often. This is in case there is a real danger and then we are fully prepared. Year 4
'' Teachers and adults make me feel safe in school. Visitors have to sign in at the school office and then they wear a sticker so we all know that they are a safe person.'' Year 5
'' At breaks and lunches I know I am safe because we have a fence around the school. All the gates are locked. Adults wear bright hi vis yellow jackets so that children know where they are.'' Year 5
''My teachers and friends keep me safe. If I had a worry, I would talk to Mrs Johnson or the Safe Space counsellor.'' Year 6
''We have fire drills so we can practice being organised and getting out of the building quickly.'' Year 6
''I feel safe in school because Mr Mc Hugh always locks the gates and makes sure that everything is secure.'' Year 6
