Safeguarding is about promoting the welfare of all children in our school, through protecting them and keeping them safe from harm. At Smawthorne Henry Moore Primary School we take safeguarding very seriously. We ensure that  every member of staff understands the schools policy on safeguarding. This allows us to create a safe and secure environment for everyone. Our schools safeguarding policy can be found by following the link below:



There is nothing more important to us than the physical, emotional and spiritual welfare of our pupils. For this reason we regard the need for Safeguarding children from all harm as vitally important. To help explain safeguarding we have put together a leaflet which provides further information. The leaflet can be accessed by following the link below:

Prevent Strategy


As part of our commitment to safeguarding and child protection, we aim to fully support the government's Prevent Strategy. 





What is the Prevent Strategy?




The Prevent Strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It:


  • responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and all aspects which are associated with extremism, as well as the threat we face from those who choose to support these views.
  • provides a range of practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and to ensure they are given the correct advice and support where needed.
  • works with a range of sectors including education and criminal justice.
