Safeguarding and Child Protection - everyone's responsibility

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

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.

The Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership aims to support professionals, parents and careers in keeping children safe.  Please visit for more information.
