Information for Parents On Safeguarding

Keeping Your Child Safe in School

‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.’ (Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022)

Please access the school’s policies relating to safeguarding on the following page: Policies & GDPR
