Statement of Safeguarding Children
Keeping Children Safe is Everyone’s Responsibility
Our school community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are in our care. This means that we have Safeguarding and Child Protection policies and procedures in place, which we refer to in our prospectus. All staff, including our volunteers and supply staff, must ensure that they are aware of our procedures.
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 or a child is at significant risk or in immediate danger.
If you become concerned about:
Comments made by a child (including disclosures, resentment, over familiarity or comments which could be considered extremist eg anti – Muslim and extreme far right views);
Marks or bruising on a child;
Changes in behaviour or attitude;
