Safeguarding Children in school is the responsibility of all staff who work within the school. We ensure all staff are aware of their responsibilities and we have enclosed a copy of our latest Child Protection Policy for parents to look at.

One of the most important documents used in school is the Keeping Children Safe in Education. This document is produced by the Government and sets out the responsibilities of all schools for keeping the children in their care safe.
