Safeguarding

Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy  - this is our policy and lists signs of possible abuse and what to do if you have a concern.

 

Safeguarding and Child Protection - everyone's responsibility

Most children enjoy generally happy childhood experiences. Unfortunately for some, this is not always the case. As a school we have a duty to ensure that we have arrangements and procedures in place for safeguarding.

Safeguarding means ensuring the safety and welfare of all children and includes attendance, behaviour, first aid, health and safety, the curriculum and equality in addition to child protection. Child Protection means protecting children from physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse or neglect so that they grow up as confident, healthy and happy adults.
