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 co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns 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 Senior Designated Person for child protection is Mr A Pratley.
The Deputy Designated Person for child protection is Mr P Bundy
The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Mrs K Laughton and Mrs H Aldous
We will review our policy and procedures on an annual basis.
