Safeguarding children in our community
Our priority is to ensure our school remains a safe place for children, staff and all other members of our school community.
What is safeguarding?
Parents/carers and visitors coming on to our school premises, including the playground and inside the buildings, have a duty of care towards the welfare and safety of the children and the adults at the school, this is called safeguarding.
Every child can potentially be hurt, put at risk from harm or abused regardless of their age, gender, religion, ethnicity or disability.
Safeguarding means that:
- children are protected from mistreatment
- a child’s health, or development, is protected
- children grow up with safe and effective care
- action is taken to ensure the best outcomes for all children.
Safeguarding is the action we take to promote the welfare of children in our care and to protect them from harm, we take this very seriously.
Equally we are all responsible for ensuring we all safeguard each other as adults while at the school.
This is the process of protecting children who may be suffering from, or at risk of, significant harm. This includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and emotional harm.
Child protection promotes the rights and welfare of all children. All schools have a minimum of one Designated Safeguarding Lead. This member of staff is responsible for speaking to parents if concerns arise, and making referrals to Children’s Social Care with, or without, parental permission.
