Safeguarding statement

The health and safety of all children is of paramount importance at Swinford Church of England Primary School. Parents send their children to school each day with the expectation that school provides a secure environment in which their children can flourish. In order to do this, a wide range of measures and policies are put in place. These are reviewed every year and are available:

  • Administration of medicines

  • Anti-bullying

  • Behaviour

  • Child Protection

  • Health and Safety

  • The Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are Mr O’Connor and Mrs Chamberlain.


Online safety statement

Embrace Multi Academy Trust takes a holistic approach to online safety. By ensuring that we utilise the latest technology to help us identify areas of concern and educating all young people about the safe use of online platforms, we strive to ensure that all pupils are not only safe within school but have the knowledge and skills to navigate online risks outside of the school environment.

Internet connections at our school are filtered using the cloud-based Securly platform, ensuring that internet access is both filtered and monitored no matter what devices are used.


Pupil activity on devices within the school is also monitored using one of the leading cloud solutions, Classroom.Cloud by Netsupport. This safeguarding and monitoring software helps to proactively identify any areas of concern and ensure pupil safety and welfare is monitored at all times. Alerts proactively notify staff should a pupil be in crisis and our Online Response Team and Designated Safeguarding Leads are quick to provide the support necessary.

Online safety is discussed and covered regularly in our school, both discreetly in the curriculum for Computing and PSHE, as well as being a regular topic for discussion in all curriculum areas.


Unless we give parents/carers prior notice of our intention to do so (for example, if we need to resurrect online teaching such as that which was taking place during the pandemic), pupils will never receive any direct electronic communication from staff members - this will always be done through parents/carers and only ever via our email accounts.

If you have any concerns whatsoever, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the school via


Domestic violence and abuse

All Leicester City and Leicestershire County schools are part of Operation Encompass which is a safeguarding initiative aimed at improving outcomes for children and families affected by domestic violence and abuse. Operation Encompass is a protocol whereby schools are formally notified of any reported incident of domestic violence at an address at which children are present or normally resident. It is run in partnership with Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and with Leicestershire Police. All public agencies currently share information where there are safeguarding concerns or risk of harm to children and the Police now share information about all incidents of domestic abuse through Operation Encompass.

If you would like to speak to someone in confidence about domestic abuse, call the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0800 802 0028. If you need to make a silent call to the police, please dial 999 and then 55 which indicates to the officer that you are not safe to talk.
