What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding can be defined by promoting the health, safety and welfare of all pupils. Safeguarding is the responsibility of all adults, especially those working or volunteering with children. The school aims to help protect the children in its care by working consistently and appropriately with all relevant agencies to reduce risk and promote the welfare of children. 

What is child protection?

Child protection is a part of safeguarding and promoting welfare. This refers to the activity which is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or at risk of suffering, significant harm.

All members of school staff are regularly trained and updated in safeguarding and child protection.

The Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Danielle Lock.

All disclosures from children or concerns from adults are taken seriously, recorded using our online safeguarding database CPOMS (Child Protection Online Management System) and when required, investigated externally thoroughly in line with our Safeguarding Policy.
