Safeguarding

“It could happen here”

Our principles are:

  • The welfare of the child is paramount
  • All children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity have equal rights to protection
  • All staff have an equal responsibility to act on any suspicion or disclosure that may suggest a child is at risk of harm
  • Pupils and staff involved in child protection issues will receive appropriate support
  • All staff members are advised to maintain an attitude of “it could happen here” where safeguarding is concerned.  When concerned about the welfare of a child staff members should always cCact in the interests of the child
