Safety and wellbeing is at the heart of our work with children and families. We are committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school and work hard to reduce all kinds of harm that children can suffer, including abuse, discrimination and avoidable injuries.
We believe that students have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment and strive to ensure that every student at the campus feels secure, well cared for, listened to and able to reach their full potential.
We understand and are committed to the vital contribution that all governors, staff, parents and students can make to safeguarding children. Our curriculum is designed to create awareness in students of safeguarding issues and how to deal with them. All staff, including non-teachers, receive regular training in identifying, reporting procedures and dealing with child protection issues
All Milton Keynes schools, including Stantonbury International School, follow the Milton Keynes Safeguarding Board (MKSB) procedures and the most recent statutory guidelines laid down by the Department for Education. The school’s Safeguarding & Child Protection policy, which includes our policy on Safer Recruitment, is available on request from Student Services or can be viewed on the school website.
The School achieved the School SafetyMARK in 2016, providing an external framework of best practice to inform and continually improve our work.
Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment, safe from radicalisation and that we all feel safe in our environment.
If your child is ever concerned about safety or well-being or about a friend, they should report it to their tutor, Student Support Leader, Year Leader a peer mentor or any another member of staff they trust. They can also use our confidential reporting link: firstname.lastname@example.org
