The welfare and safety of children who attend our school is our first and paramount concern.

We will promote the health, well-being and safety of our pupils in all we do. Your children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school. The school understands the responsibilities set out under various legistlation to work together in partnership with other agencies to help children to grow up in a healthy and safe environment.

All members of staff have a part to play in ensuring that your children are safe and that their well-being is supported. The overall responsibility for safeguarding issues is with the Principal although this may be delegated to other trained Designated safeguarding leads on a day to day basis.

Mrs Lee, as the Designated Safeguarding Lead, will have responsibility for maintaining accurate records of all incidents and liaising with external agencies. She will also oversee the training programme for all staff and ensure that staff are kept up to date with all the relevant safeguarding policy matters.

The Principal will retain responsibility for all matters of staff recruitment and related safeguarding issues such as the appropriate DBS checks and reference documentation is obtained when employing staff.
