The school is committed to:

  • safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety, and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, of children and young people;
  • promoting equality of opportunity and community cohesion where the diversity of different backgrounds and circumstances is appreciated and positively valued;
  • the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs.

and expects all staff, volunteers and other workers to share this commitment.

‘Schools and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child’.

Keeping Children Safe in Education 2021

The Child Protection / Safeguarding Policy is for all staff, parents, governors, volunteers and the wider school community. It forms part of the safeguarding arrangements for our school.

All staff receive regular Child Protection and Safeguarding update training and are aware of the procedures for passing on concerns within school.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child or young person’s welfare.
