Safeguarding Policy and Information

Every child has a right to be protected from harm and to feel safe and secure in an educational environment.
Children cannot learn if they are unhappy or frightened, therefore all schools have procedures in place for protecting children. If staff have any concerns regarding a child’s welfare, the staff named below are responsible for child protection issues and trained in recognising and acting upon these concerns.
All staff have a duty of care which means:

  • All staff are accountable for the way in which they exercise authority, manage risk, use resources and protect pupils from discrimination and avoidable harm
  • All staff, whether paid or voluntary, have a duty to keep young people safe and to protect them from physical and emotional harm

Please do not hesitate to contact one of the staff below should you have any welfare concerns.

Who to Contact in School: Child Protection Designated Staff
