Safeguarding

Safeguarding Children Statement Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

It refers to the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm. Effective child protection is essential as part of wider work to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Staff, pupils, parents and governors should feel secure that they could raise any issues or concerns about the safety or welfare of children and know that they will be listened to and taken seriously. This will be achieved by maintaining an ethos of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and protecting staff.

A wide range of policies and documentation is in place to ensure that this expectation becomes reality. These include the following: These policies are updated on a regular cycle, outlined in the Policy Review Cycle Spreadsheet, to reflect the changing needs of the pupils who attend our school.
