Safeguarding

We take safeguarding children very seriously. All children have the right to be safe.

All of our staff receive regular, face to face training as well as follow up online training as appropriate. We use a computerised system called CPOMS to record any issues and this allows all adults to report concerns as quickly as possible. We have an open door policy and children and parents can access support and guidance from lots of places at all times.

We work in partnership with external agencies including safeguarding, social care, the police, school nursing service and lots more to ensure that pupils are well looked after.

It is the responsibility of every adult in our school to ensure that we maintain the highest level of awareness about possible unsafe practices and deal with any issues immediately and appropriately.
