Our school recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils. We will endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
Our Designated Safeguard Leader is Mrs S Aston, it is her responsibility for child protection issues in school. Both 'Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015)' and 'Keeping Children Safe in Education (2016)' require that all schools have a Designated Safeguard Lead in place to deal with child protection concerns and in Mrs Astons absence, Mr Minor (Deputy Head) and Miss Jepson (Parent Link) are always available.
