The school has rigorous guidelines and policies to promote safeguarding, including safe recruitment and the statutory checking of staff, volunteers and visitors.
Our staff, Governors and volunteers attend regular safeguarding training. The school has three Designated Safeguarding Leads and a named Governor responsible for Safeguarding:
|Designated Safeguarding Lead||Mrs H Picton|

|Governor for Safeguarding||Mrs J Clarke|
What does safeguarding children mean?
All adults who come into contact with children, including parents and volunteer helpers, have a responsibility to help keep those children safe from harm and danger, and to safeguard and promote their welfare.
To do this, parents and volunteer helpers must have an understanding of safeguarding within the school setting, and know what to do if there are any concerns about a child or young person.
Please also see the parent pamphlet regarding The Prevent Strategy.
Our Safeguarding Policy is on our policy page or available from the School Office.
