Safeguarding Children and Internet Safety

We as a school are committed to ensuring the safety and well being of our children at all times. We do this by providing a safe environment for them to learn and develop whether this be in the classroom or using external resources found on the Internet.

In this section of our website, you will find details of our safeguarding practices and our Internet safety procedures which you can also use and follow at home.

Safeguarding Children 

Schools play a large part in protecting children. We aim to provide a safe environment that is conducive to learning. We also aim to identify children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and take appropriate steps to keep them safe in school and at home when required.

Operation Encompass

Encompass has been set up to help school provide support to children who have been present at incidents of domestic violence. 

Heacham Junior School will be taking part in this jointly run operation with Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Police.

The school will receive a confidential phone call from the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub before 9am on the morning after any domestic incident where a child at our school had been involved, present or witnessed.

The information is given to the school's key adults who will then enable support to be given, dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to our pupils and we believe this is going to be extremely beneficial to all those involved.
