Child Protection

As a school, we have a duty of care to ensure the welfare and safety of all of our pupils. In an instance when staff have cause for concern that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other form of abuse, they will follow the agreed ‘child protection procedures’ and inform the designated member of staff within school who may refer to First Contact the concerns shared. All disclosures are taken seriously and the Child Protection team will follow the guidance provided to ensure all pupils’ safety is regarded as the priority.

There may be instances when a member of the Child Protection team has to engage with families to discuss awkward and embarrassing topics, however our priority is the safety, health and well-being of the child and is not to judge individuals or circumstances.
