Safeguarding Statement

 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people. We expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment.
Our staff have a responsibility to follow the schools safeguarding procedures and take appropriate action, this may include working with other services such as Children and Social Care as and when required.

In most instances, the school will be able to inform the parents/carer if it needs to make a referral. However, sometimes the school is advised by Children’s Social Care or police that the parent/carer cannot be informed whilst they investigate the matter.We understand the anxiety parents/carers understandably feel when they are not told about any concerns from the outset. The school follows legislation that aims to act in the best interests of the child.

The schools designated safeguarding leads are Mrs Leslie, Mr Skye, Mrs Abel, Mrs Spencer, Mrs Murray and Mrs Cartwright.
