Safeguarding Policy

We recognise the importance of providing an ethos and environment within our school that will help learners to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly; and enable them to feel confident that they will be listened to.

Safeguarding our children is our top priority. We recognise that we are an important part of the wider safeguarding system for children and young people.

Every member of staff has regular training in how to safeguard the children in our school and our safeguarding team (pictured above) receive further training on specialised cases and circumstances.
