Children and young people have the right to be protected from harm. Families have a right to expect schools to provide a safe and secure environment. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
As a church school, we recognise that every child is loved and valued by God and our actions as a school should reflect this. We aim to protect our children by working consistently and appropriately with all agencies to reduce risk and promote the welfare of children.
Safeguarding children is defined in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ as:
- protecting children from maltreatment
- preventing the impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development
- ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care, and
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
