All adults who come into contact with our pupils have a statutory duty of care to safeguard and promote their welfare.
Our staff are trained in accordance with the latest standards, which applies to all adults, including volunteers working in or on behalf of the school.
Safeguarding children goes much wider than simply protecting them from neglect and abuse. It is also about keeping them safe from accidents, crime, bullying and actively promoting their welfare in a healthy and safe environment. We take the following steps to help ensure our students are safe from harm:
- All staff are trained in how to support our young people and how to spot the early warning signs of any safeguarding issue
- We work closely work with the Local Authority, implementing support as and when it is needed, with the help of trained professionals
- We have created a supportive community where we take care of each other and know where to get support when it is needed
Safeguarding policies can be found in the Policies and Documents section.
Any parent or carer who has concerns about the safety of a child is encouraged to discuss their concern with one of the above named adults. They can also contact Stronger Families Hub on 01895 556006.
