Federation of Westminster Special Schools & Bi-Borough Inclusion Service


The Federation of Westminster Special Schools follow the guidance set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2023 and read in conjunction with our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. The Federation's Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy will be ratified by Governors to reflect the new guidance from KCSIE September 2023.'

The Federation of Westminster Special Schools takes its safeguarding responsibilities very seriously, with the overriding priority being the health, safety and well-being of every pupil and staff member. This means we ensure that:

  • Designated teachers for safeguarding and child protection are trained to the highest level in safeguarding and child protection policy and procedures;

  • Everyone working across the Federation has successfully completed the statutory security checks and clearances and undertakes annual safeguarding training to ensure that they understand and adhere to current safeguarding procedures;

  • Safeguarding policies and procedures are robust, including the Child Protection and Safeguarding policy and Whistle-blowing policy. These are reviewed annually by the Federation Governing Board to ensure that we are in line with current statutory safeguarding requirements and procedures.

  • The implementation of safeguarding policies and procedures is monitored closely by senior leaders and governors to support the safeguarding of our pupils and staff.

Our aim is that every pupil is able to learn and thrive in a safe, caring and stimulating environment. We listen carefully to our pupils and take very seriously what they tell us. In doing so, we use the pupil’s preferred method of communication, such as PECS and Makaton. We also carefully monitor any changes in attendance, behaviour and appearance. Our full Safeguarding Policy is linked below.

The statutory guidance and procedures we follow have been laid down by the Department for Education (DfE) and supported by the Local Safeguarding Childrens' Partnership. These duties are adhered to by the Federation’s Governing Board. By working closely with everyone concerned, we firmly believe that we offer a safe learning environment for all our pupils.
