As part of our commitment to safeguarding, the school has liaised with the NSPCC and invites them into school. The NSPCC website has a range of resources to support parents and carers outside of school to supplement the learning that pupils participate in as part of the PSHE curriculum.
The parents' advice section of the NSPCC website can be found at https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/support-for-parents/
For details of the RSE curriculum that the school teaches pupils, please go to https://www.edwardpauling.hounslow.sch.uk/rse-information/
If you have any questions regarding the teaching of these lessons, please speak to your child's class teacher in the first instance.

As part of Edward Pauling Primary School's ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government's Prevent Strategy.
From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.
At Edward Pauling, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values and enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views.
The statutory guidance refers to the importance of Prevent awareness training to equip staff to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas.
