Our Commitment to Safeguarding


As a school, we are highly committed to all aspects of safeguarding and promoting the health and welfare of our children.


Our Safeguarding Policies and Procedures


We have regularly reviewed and rigorous Safeguarding Policy and Procedures in place.


All staff including our volunteers and supply staff are required to ensure that they are aware of our procedures. All adults who work in the school are subject to Enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) checks in addition to rigorous screening procedures.


All adults who work in the school are trained to take responsibility for promoting and safeguarding the welfare of pupils at the school.


Sharing Information


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child's best interests.


Safeguarding Responsibilities


The well-being of each child is the responsibility of the class teacher under the oversight of the Principal.
