This school recognises it’s responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of the children and young people entrusted to its care by establishing a safe and trusting environment in which children can learn and develop.
The staff and Governing Body of this school are committed to establishing and maintaining an environment where children feel secure, are encouraged to talk, and are listened to. We will ensure that children know that there are adults in the school who they can approach if they are worried and that the principles of confidentiality are made clear to children and young people. The school promotes a positive, supportive and secure ethos, giving pupils a sense of being valued and understanding that their voice will be heard.
Mr Mark Willett is the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection.
Mr Terence Walsh is the Deputy Designated Senior Person for Child Protection.
In the absence of the DSL and the deputy DSL the most senior member of staff in school will assume responsibility for any child protection matters that arise.
