CPOMS stands for Child Protection Online Monitoring System and is used by school for monitoring child protection, safeguarding and pastoral and welfare issues. CPOMS provides our safeguarding team with a system to help with the management of child protection, behavioural issues, bullying, special educational needs and domestic issues. Every member of staff across school has an obligation to report any concerns which they may have. CPOMS allows this information to be recorded in a central repository and have relevant people alerted immediately. Senior leaders are able to build a chronology around a student and can produce reports for Case Conference Meetings, Governors and other professionals very easily.
All of our staff receive safeguarding training to ensure that they have a level of understanding appropriate for working in school. This includes basic safeguarding and child protection training, more in depth training on the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018 document and training on the Prevent strategy / FGM and Child Sexual Exploitation.
