Safeguarding @ IJDS  

Independent Jewish Day School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the physical, mental and emotional welfare of every pupil, both inside and outside of the school premises. We implement a whole-school preventative approach to managing safeguarding concerns, ensuring that the well-being of pupils is at the forefront of all action taken.


Safeguarding children in our current climate encompasses many areas: child protection, online safety, the security of our school as a site, health and safety, behaviour, our anti-bullying policy, radicalisation, racism and discrimination, child on child abuse and contextual safeguarding amongst others. Please read our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy for more of an in-depth understanding of our safeguarding roles. We also have a child friendly version which we share with pupils each term.

Keeping Children Safe in Education is the key information from the Government around safeguarding and all our staff read Part 1 and its updates at the beginning of the school year. We provide regular updates and reminders throughout the year to make sure training is current. We ensure that everyone who works in our school has undergone the relevant DBS checks and are legally entitled to work in the UK. Any adult working with children will receive appropriate safeguarding training.


Prevent Duty
As part of our safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government’s Prevent Strategy and Educate Against Hate initiatives. From 1 July 2015, all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools. We build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values. The statutory guidance refers to the importance of Prevent awareness training to equip staff to identify pupils at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas. Staff have undergone Prevent awareness training.



We work alongside the CST (Community Security Trust) to ensure that our children are kept safe at all times. CST will advise us for outings and off site residentials. We always take a security guard with us on outings. For more information about the CST, please visit their website:
