“Safeguarding is everyone's business.”
We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children and adults. We make every effort to provide an environment in which all individuals feel safe, secure, valued and respected, and feel confident to talk if they are worried, believing they will be effectively listened to.
We have in place a comprehensive Safeguarding policy to provide staff, volunteers and governors with the framework they need in order to keep children safe and secure in our school. The policy also informs parents and carers how we will safeguard their children whilst they are in our care.
Are you a school volunteer?
We have scheduled a number of safeguarding workshops for volunteers who help in our school on the following dates:
Tuesday 7th November 2023 6.00 - 6.45pm
Friday 19th January 2024 9.00 - 9.45am
Thursday 29th February 2024 2.30 -3.15pm
Please note that ALL volunteers are required to attend a workshop this year so we can ensure our helpers have all the information and skills they need to keep our children safe. Please contact the school office to book yourself on one of the workshops.
