Safeguarding

Our school is committed to safeguarding children and promoting children’s welfare and expects all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. Everyone has a responsibility to act, without delay, to protect children by reporting anything that might suggest a child is being abused or neglected. It is our willingness to work safely and challenge inappropriate behaviours that underpins this commitment. The school seeks to work in partnership with families and other agencies to improve the outcomes for children who are vulnerable or in need.’

If any parent, member of staff, governor has a child protection safeguarding query, the designated person to speak to is Mrs Harrison and in her absence, Mr Robinson. Both are qualified Designated Safeguarding Leads
