At Front Lawn, 12 children completed a selection process and have been awarded the role of Safeguarding champion.
Research has shown, that some children find it easier to speak initially to another child rather than an adult about things that are worrying them. This can range from friendships and school work right up to bigger worries.
The role of Safeguarding Champion is to have a basic understanding of safeguarding, to be a supportive friend to their peers and to signpost them to the right adult.
The Safeguarding Champions also support children to keep safe throughout the year, using themed topics. Halloween and Firework night are two examples of this.
Every class from Y1 to Y6 has a Safeguarding Champion and they are expected to exemplify the highest expectations for behaviour and attitude as outlined in the school policy.
