Safeguarding and Child Protection: Overview

At Keyingham Primary school, wrecognise that your child is our responsibility and concern. We want to work in partnership with you, and discuss with you, any concerns we may have or that you may have.

Since the first priority is your child’s welfare, there may be rare occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you.

The East Riding Safeguarding Children Board has laid down the procedures we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all.

If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to the Headteacher,  your child’s class teacher or Mrs Paula Robinson who is the Governor with responsibility for Child Protection. A copy of our Child Protection Policy is available on this website in the policy documents section and a paper copy can be obtained from the school office.

The Prevent Strategy

As part of Keyingham Primary’s commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government’s Prevent Strategy.


Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes.

Since July 2015 there has been a duty on schools to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’. This is called the Prevent duty.

At Keyingham Primary school, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views. You can read about what we do to promote British values in our British Values Statement below

It is important to emphasise that the Prevent duty is not intended to stop pupils debating controversial issues. On the contrary, schools should provide a safe space in which children, young people and staff can understand the risks associated with terrorism and develop the knowledge and skills to be able to challenge extremist arguments.

Keyingham Primary School has clear procedures in place to safeguard children, including protecting children at risk of radicalisation. Parents can find details of these procedures in our Child Protection Policy on the policy section of this website.

All members of staff are aware of the school’s safeguarding policy and procedures and follow these for any aspect of safeguarding, including extremist views.

All members of teaching staff have undertaken Prevent training led by a member of the East Riding Safeguarding Board training staff.

As with any form of safeguarding if a member of staff, parent or community member has any concerns about a child they should inform the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Edmiston, in order that any individuals who are at risk receive the support that they need.

WHAT IS RADICALISATION? “Radicalisation” refers to the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and forms of extremism leading to terrorism. During that process it is possible to intervene to prevent vulnerable people being drawn into terrorist-related activity.

WHAT IS EXTREMISM? ‘Vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs’. Being drawn into terrorism includes not only violent extremism but also non-violent extremism.

As some of you may be aware, there is a craze on the internet and WhatsApp called the ‘Momo Challenge’. The sheet below gives more information
Momo Fact Sheet     
Please reinforce with your child that this is not real and use this opportunity to reinforce online safety messages with them,  including the importance of saying “no” to invitations to play games from strangers and why they should not click on unidentified links. It is vital that parents monitor their child’s activity on the internet and talk to them about their use of the internet.

NSPCC: Keeping children safe online


We are aware that some of our children are using Instagram, a social media platform for children 13 + years old. As the first point of the terms of use for Instagram states that all users must be 13 years old, we recommend that parents delete their child’s account using the following link:
Delete an account
If parents are allowing their child to use Instagram we strongly recommend that children are supervised at all times when using this. Parents should be aware that there is a feature now on Instagram which deletes some pictures and videos once they have been viewed, making it difficult for parents to monitor what their child is seeing. The following user guides for parents provide support on making sure that your child is using Instagram safely.
