Safeguarding at Luccombe
The Luccombe Hub is committed to keeping our young people safe. By providing a safe environment for children to learn and engage, and by identifying children who are, or may be suffering harm. The Centre endeavours to ensure children and young people are kept safe always.
To achieve this, we have systems in place which are designated to:
Create and maintain a safe learning environment
Identify welfare concerns and take appropriate action
Use the curriculum to enable our young people to develop keep safe strategies
Create a listening culture to hear the young persons’ voice
Operate safer recruitment and selection procedures to prevent unsuitable people working with our young people.
Anyone visiting the centre shares the responsibility to keep our children safe whilst on our premises and will be required to work within the guidelines of our safeguarding procedures.
If at any time, you have concerns about the welfare of a child Henri Monier-Williams, the Designated Safeguarding Lead, should be contacted.
For more information, please see our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. All policies are available on request or can be found in the Policies section of our website.
Online Safety information for parents
Whilst the ever-changing world of technology can bring a positive aspect to modern life, we cannot ignore the risks that can be associated with it and so it is important that our young people remain safe whilst online.
Through our PSHE & Online Safety curriculum, we aim to teach our young people:
- How to be vigilant when communicating online, recognising that people may not always be who they say they are and to be sensible about information that they share.
- About the impact of cyber-bullying and what to do if they are affected.
- How to search for information responsibly while using internet browsers and to question the reliability of information given through a web based source,
- And to tell an adult they trust if something is upsetting them.
We understand our young people access the internet away from Centre life and so below is a list of useful websites that provide advice and resources that you may find helpful when navigating online safety issues.
