Safeguarding

At Isambard Brunel, we recognise our responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We strive to provide a safe and happy environment where children are respected, valued and able to learn successfully.

We are alert to the signs of maltreatment and vulnerability and follow our procedures to ensure all children receive effective support and protection.

All our staff have had training around the Prevent Duty – part of the national counter-terrorism strategy aiming to stop people being drawn into or supporting terrorism. Children and young people can be drawn into extremist groups via the internet, pressure from family or friends and exposure to inappropriate materials. As a school, we aim to promote the British Values and endeavour to minimise any risks to children.
