Safeguarding

Our safeguarding policies and procedures ensure that every child, regardless of their age, disability, race, religion, or belief, has a right to equal protection from harm. Safeguarding is the action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

WHAT IS SAFEGUARDING?

  • Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • Preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • Ensuring children grow up with provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people
  • ‘The welfare of the child is paramount’ (The Children Act, 1989)

 

Children and child protection guidance Safeguarding applies to all children up to the age of 18.

WHAT PARENTS CAN DO IF THEY HAVE A CONCERN

If you have any concerns about a child’s welfare, please talk directly to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads.

If you have a safeguarding concern or allegation related to the leadership of the school, you can contact the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) – 01962 876364.
