Safeguarding is the action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm and it is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play. Safeguarding covers a broad agenda and aims to achieve the following:

  • Prevention:( positive school atmosphere, teaching and pastoral support to pupils).
  • Protection :( By following agreed procedures, ensuring staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to Child Protection concerns).
  • Support :( ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes )


Our School recognises that it has an explicit duty to safeguard, protect and promote the welfare of children from abuse and to work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess and support those children who are suffering harm.


We believe that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and as such our school aims to create the safest environment within which every pupil has the opportunity to strive and reach their potential.
