For our Safeguarding and Child Protection policy, please see our Policies Page.


Our school community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are our pupils.  This means that we have a range of Safeguarding and Child Protection policies and procedures in place. 

All staff, including our volunteers and supply staff, must ensure that they are aware of our procedures. 

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child’s best interests or a child is at significant risk or in immediate danger.

Safeguarding is not just about protecting children from deliberate harm.  It relates to aspects of school life including:

Health and Safety

Supporting pupils with medical needs

Educational visits

Preventing extremism and radicalisation

Intimate care

Internet/online or e-safety

Behaviour

Bullying 

Other harassment and discrimination, including racism

Appropriate arrangements to ensure school security, taking into account the local context

The use of reasonable force

First Aid

Recruitment and vetting of staff and visitors to the school site

Physical security of the school site
