Safeguarding

Landkey Community Primary Academy recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We will provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. Child protection forms part of the school‟s safeguarding responsibilities. Landkey Academy is part of the Tarka Learning Partnership which sets policy relating to safeguarding.

Thank you to the NSPCC for working with our children on a 'Speak Out. Stay Safe.' visit.  Encouraging your children to speak up and share their feelings help keep them safe.  The NSPCC website https://www.nspcc.org.uk/ has useful information for helping parents keep children safe.

CEOP
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) is a police organisation that helps children stay safe online.

You can make a report to CEOP about a child in danger of abuse. This could be you or someone you know or care for. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be inappropriate chat, being asked to do something that make you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up.

You can report it by clicking on the CEOP button below.

Devon Children and Families Partnership
Children in Devon are best safeguarded when key agencies work together effectively.
The Devon Children and Families Partnership is designed to help make this happen.
