All the governors and staff at Laughton Junior and Infant School share an objective to help keep the children safe by contributing to:

  • Providing a safe environment for them to learn

  • Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm and taking appropriate action, with the aim of making sure that they are kept safe both at home and in the education setting.


To achieve this objective, we:

  • Aim to prevent unsuitable people from working with the children

  • Promote safe practice and challenge any poor or unsafe practice

  • Identify instances where there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe

  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children


For further information about how we keep children safe in our setting please read the school's Child Protection and Safeguarding policy and Digital safeguarding policy (on our policy page). We follow the guidance set out by the Rotherham Safeguarding Children's board and the safeguarding team within the trust. Please see the information on Safeguarding Children's Board

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass has been designed to provide support for any child in school who may be affected by a domestic abuse incident where the police have attended.

Operation Encompass


Laughton Junior and Infant School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.

All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

On 1 July 2015 the Prevent duty (section 26) of The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 came into force. This duty places the responsibility on local authorities to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

As part of Laughton Junior and Infant School’s commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government's Prevent Strategy.

Prevent Policy

Keeping your child safe

The NSPCC wants to help parents and carers talk to their children about keeping themselves safe. Children should learn that there are parts of the body that are private and The Underwear Rule is just one way that - together - we can help prevent child abuse.

The Talking Pants Parents' Guide tells you all about it. On the website there is a Learn the Underwear Rule guide for children, too.

Are you worried?

Are you worried that a child you know is suffering from abuse? Please read the guidance below for more information. If you are at all worried, please come and speak to a member of staff in school or follow the reporting information below.
