Safeguarding arrangements at this school are underpinned by these key principles:

  • Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility: anyone who has contact with a child or young person including Governors and volunteers should play their full part in keeping children (Includes vulnerable adults when in their setting) safe;
  • We will aim to protect children using national, local and school child protection procedures;
  • We aim to work in partnership and have an important role in multi-agency safeguarding arrangements as set out by Working Together 2018 and KCSIE 2019;
  • Anyone who has contact with a child or young person including Governors and volunteers  have a clear understanding regarding abuse and neglect in all forms; including how to identify, respond and report.
  • We operate a child-centred approach: a clear understanding of the needs, wishes, views and voices of children.
