Invictus International Programme is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Safeguarding is at the core of everything we do at IIP and is everyone’s responsibility.

Activities and experiences are planned with regard to safeguarding procedures for all of our children. The health and safety of our children are of paramount importance. Parents send their children to school each day with the expectation that school provides a secure environment in which children can grow and flourish. At IIP a wide range of measures are put in place to achieve this outcome (see Safeguarding Policy below). Adults in school who have undertaken training for the role of Designated Safeguarding Leaders are:

Staff receive regular updates, information and training on aspects of safeguarding. All staff are required to share any concerns they may have about the well-being or safety of a child or family with one of the Designated Safeguarding Leaders who will then decide on appropriate procedures for each concern raised.

All staff are aware of the information contained in the Safeguarding policy and the expectations for those working with children and families. There is a Staff Code of Conduct that sets out our expectations for all adults at Invictus International Programme.

Adults in school work closely with outside agencies where concerns have been shared to support and help children and families. Sometimes we may need to share information with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will discuss our concerns with a child’s parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that this may not be in the best interest of the child. Part of our safeguarding work may require us to work with colleagues from social care, health or the police.

Aspects of safety education are taught throughout the school from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 8 through PSHE lessons and where appropriate across the, e.g. road safety, stranger danger, e-safety. When going on educational visits or residential trips our children are well prepared to keep safe through discussion of any possible risks and how to overcome these. In this way, children are prepared for situations they may encounter in everyday life.
