Safeguarding is the highest priority within Reedswood E-ACT Primary Academy.
Great importance is placed on identifying opportunities in the taught curriculum for children to learn about safeguarding.
Our broad curriculum gives pupils opportunities to experience life in all its diversity, to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills that significantly impact on personal development, behaviour and welfare and equips every child with the knowledge and skills required for personal safeguarding.

Our PHSE curriculum covers all areas of Safeguarding through each of the strands, and is further developed through assemblies, visitors and other curriculum areas.
We are sensitive in our teaching and recognise that some more sensitive subjects need to be taught at an age-appropriate level, or at a small group or 1:1 level where a more urgent need arises.
We differentiated our safeguarding curriculum, including our RSE objectives in order to ensure our SEND children have full access to this vital knowledge and skills.
We plan to constantly challenge children to think deeply about safeguarding matters and their own personal physical and mental wellbeing.
We value pupils’ questions and give them space for their own thoughts, ideas and concerns. We give them opportunities across the curriculum to explore values, personal rights, responsibilities and equal opportunities that develop moral concepts that impact positively on safeguarding, promote British values and prevent radicalisation and extremism.
