Safeguarding

We take seriously our responsibility to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding is:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

 

Child protection is part of our safeguarding process and focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering, or likely to suffer, significant harm.

We promote the welfare of children by:

  • creating a positive school atmosphere
  • teaching children about safety through our curriculum
  • supporting pupils through our pastoral system
  • following agreed procedures and ensuring all staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively
  • supporting pupils who may have been abused

If you have a safeguarding concern, contact Mrs Ramet in the first instance via the school office. In her absence, contact Mrs Griffiths or Miss Withers.
