This school believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind.
We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.
We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or risk of harm.
We will work cooperatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection is Mrs Pearce-King
The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads for child protection are Mrs V Gent, Mr C Forrester and Mrs V Reading
The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Mrs C Wharrad
