The Health & Safety statement of intent is to implement the requirements of the Red Kite Learning Trust Health & Safety policy.
The Chief Executive Officer, Trustees and Members of Red Kite learning Trust (RKLT) recognise and accept their responsibilities, both legal and moral, to ensure, so far as is reasonable and practicable, accidents and ill health are prevented and risks to employees, students, visitors and others arising from all activities of RKLT are suitably and sufficiently controlled.
Safely managed educational visits with a clear purpose are an indispensable part of a broad and balanced curriculum and a vibrant part of the academies within the Red Kite Learning Trust. They are an opportunity to extend pupils’ learning and enrich their appreciation and understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. They can be the catalyst for improved academic performance, contextual understanding, a lifetime interest or in some cases professional fulfilment. They are to be encouraged.
The School is obliged to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 when it takes or publishes photographs and or video of its students.
HGS believes that RSE is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils and involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity.
This policy provides principles, guidelines and procedures as to how Harrogate Grammar School promotes positive relationships and supports students to meet our high expectations for behaviour.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. Harrogate Grammar School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
RKLT and Harrogate Grammar School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of their Pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility
From 20th March 2020 parents were asked to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children of workers critical to the COVID-19 response - who absolutely need to attend. Schools and all childcare providers were asked to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable, and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. This addendum of the Red Kite Learning Trust Safeguarding, and Child Protection policy contains details of our individual safeguarding arrangements.
This policy provides principles, guidelines and procedures about searching, screening, confiscation and restraint.
