Our school follows strict procedures with regards to safeguarding children and child protection as laid out in the detail of ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education” and ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children”, “Safer Recruitment in Education 2007’ and “Prevent Duty: for schools and childcare providers”
We work closely with social care services and education welfare to ensure the best levels of care for our children. There are clear, agreed systems in place to safeguard our children effectively. All concerns about a child’s well being are carefully recorded and logged with members of staff who have responsibility for safeguarding children.
We have an attendance officer who is based at our school for a number of days a week and a family support worker from Monday to Friday. They work closely with the senior management to ensure that our children feel happy and safe. They work closely with our children and families to give advice and support.
