Safeguarding… Everybody… Everyday
KITE College is committed to the safety and wellbeing of its learners and staff.
The college recognises the importance of providing an ethos and environment that will help learners to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to.
In order to help promote this ethos within college, we have a number of resources which provide clear information and support to all learners.
Across our college site, safeguarding displays are an integral fixture. These displays are distinctive as they each have the same, uniformed colour scheme comprising of a blue background and red border accompanied by a clear heading. Our displays which are aimed at learners and parents/guardians are located in our main college hall and KS1 entrance. Our staff safeguarding displays are present in both staffrooms and in the PPA room. All of the displays are regularly updated to reflect changes in policy/procedure. They are regularly referred to and have an element of interaction to ensure they don’t become ‘wallpaper’ but instead are useful sources of information.
To support our distinctive, safeguarding displays we also have a number of colleges posters which are displayed across the site, including in all classrooms, teaching spaces, offices and communal areas. Within each classroom and teaching space, our ‘Trusted Adult’ poster is clearly displayed beside the entrance/exit point. This poster explains to children who they can talk to at college, at home and/or in the wider college community if they have any personal worries or if they have concerns for a friend, fellow peer or sibling. As part of our PSHE curriculum, the posters are referred to by staff to ensure pupils understand the terminology and who their trusted adults are.
