Matthew Arnold school staff have worked very hard to create a stimulating and progressive curriculum that needs the needs of our pupils. Please see below.

Keeping safe overview

Our curriculum supports staff to teach explicitly the messages that Primary children need to know to be able to keep themselves and others safe.


The details of the teaching will vary depending on the age and needs of the class. There are many links with PSHE, RE and the Science curriculum, and although a particular subject may cover the necessary information it is vital that a direct link is made to safeguarding, so the children are familiar that certain knowledge and behaviours helps to keep them safe.


'Keeping Safe' teaching takes place in a safe and supportive atmosphere; regular time is given for children to share their learning and talk about their feelings.


Where a child discloses information that puts them at risk or where there is a concern raised about any aspect of their knowledge and understanding, staff immediately inform the Safeguarding team.
