Safeguarding in the Curriculum
The Hub provides education for students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. We must therefore ensure that the curriculum content around safeguarding is delivered at an appropriate level. Student safeguarding and the promotion of British values are fundamental of our work at The Hub School. Great importance is placed on identifying opportunities in the taught curriculum for students to learn about how to keep themselves safe. Our broad curriculum gives students opportunities to experience life in all its diversity, to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills that significantly impact on personal development, behaviour and welfare and equips every student with the knowledge and skills required for personal safeguarding. Our PSHE curriculum covers various areas of safeguarding. We are sensitive in our teaching and recognise that some more delicate subjects need to be taught at an age appropriate level, or at a small group or 1:1 level where a more urgent need arises.
We plan to constantly challenge students to think deeply about safeguarding matters and their own personal physical and mental well-being. We value student’s questions and give them space for their own thoughts, ideas and concerns. We give them opportunities across the curriculum to explore values, personal rights, responsibilities and equal opportunities that develop moral concepts that impact positively on safeguarding, promote British values and prevent radicalisation and extremism. There are many opportunities throughout our Learning in school to explore safeguarding issues.
