Safeguarding

Ranelagh Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. We believe that:

  • All children have the right to be protected from harm
  • Children need to be safe and to feel safe in school
  • Children need support which matches their individual needs, including those who may have experienced abuse
  • All children have the right to speak freely and voice their values and beliefs
  • All children must be encouraged to respect each other’s values and support each other
  • All children have the right to be supported to meet their emotional, and social needs as well as their educational needs – a happy healthy sociable child will achieve better educationally
  • Schools can and do contribute to the prevention of abuse, victimisation, bullying, exploitation, radicalisation, extreme behaviours, discriminatory views and risk taking behaviours
  • All staff and visitors have an important role to play in safeguarding children and protecting them from abuse

Safeguarding is defined as:

  • Protecting children from maltreatment
  • Preventing impairment of children's health or development
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances

Ranelagh Primary School will fulfil their local and national responsibilities as laid out in the following documents:

 Online safety

At Ranelagh we have an internet filtering system which protects our children; this is managed by an organisation called the London Grid For Learning ( LGFL)

Below you may find some useful websites which will help you gain a better understanding to protect your children at home and school.

As a result of our recent Online Safety Week it has been bought to our attention that some children have accounts on the the social network music.ly - this social network operates a strict 13+ policy and the school recommends that you do not let your child have an account even with the privacy settings set to the highest.  There have been verified reports in the media recently of adults getting round these settings - in these cases your children might be in at risk. Please ensure that you are aware of the websites/apps that your children have accounts on. If you want to know if a website is safe for your child you can check at webwise.ie or speak to your child's teacher.
