Safeguarding Statement:

The child’s welfare is of paramount importance, we are a child centred school.  Our school is committed to safeguarding children and promoting children’s welfare and expects all staff, board members, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. Everyone has a responsibility to act without delay to protect children by reporting anything that might suggest a child is being abused or neglected. It is our willingness to work safely and challenge inappropriate behaviours that underpins this commitment. The school seeks to work in partnership with families and other agencies to improve the outcomes for children who are vulnerable or in need.

Pupils feel safe and are safe. Staff know the pupils well and understand that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
