Safeguarding

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Kingsdale Foundation School is a 'telling school'. Bullying of any kind is not tolerated at Kingsdale Foundation School. 

At Kingsdale Foundation School safeguarding the welfare of young people in our community is the responsibility of all. In the section of the website are located some of our key policies and documents relating to safeguarding.

Online Safety and the Prevent Strategy

In light of the recent events in both London and Manchester, at Kingsdale, we are aware that some parents/carers and guardians may have concerns around the safety of your child when using the internet and new technologies at home.

Here are some websites that will help support your efforts in keeping your child safe online.

In relation to extremism, radicalisation and terrorism, please visit

In addition, BBC Newsround have put together an excellent page of advice and reassurance for young people worried or frightened after these events:

Throughout this week, we celebrated Safer Internet Day (Tuesday 7th February 2017) with a range of activities designed to help our young people stay safe online. 

During the Summer Term 2017, students in all years will be engaging in further activities to ensure their safe use of the internet, including online social networks.  This will be delivered by specialist providers in small groups and in year based assemblies.  Further details are available from Mr O Fatodu, School E-Safety Lead.
