Westwood with Iford Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. 

From Keeping Children Safe in Education (Part 1):

"Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Where a child is suffering significant harm, or is likely to do so, action should be taken to protect that child. Action should also be taken to promote the welfare of a child in need of additional support, even if they are not suffering harm or are at immediate risk."

Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS)

Information from the police: Domestic violence and abuse is a devastating crime that shatters the lives of victims and families.

The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) – often referred to as “Clare’s Law” after the tragic case of Clare Wood, who was murdered by her former partner in Greater Manchester in 2009 – was rolled out across all 43 police forces in England and Wales.

The Scheme allows the police to disclose information regarding an individual’s previous violent and abusive offending to their partner, where this may help protect them from further violence and abuse.

Based on the information provided within an application, we will carry out a range of checks. If these reveal a record of abuse, or suggest a risk of violence or abuse, we will consider sharing this information.

Our aim is to help people to make a more informed decision on whether to continue a relationship and provide help and support when making that choice.
