Safeguarding children is at the heart of all we do. The school has extensive policies and practices to safeguard children and ensure they can feel safe, secure and valued at school. Any issues related to safeguarding should be brought immediately to the attention of the Designated Lead Professionals for Safeguarding, Mrs Jill Vavasour and Mrs Louisa Brown.
One of the main elements of safeguarding is Child Protection, and clearly this is something that we take very seriously. However, there are many more aspects to safeguarding in school: awareness of online safety and cyber-bullying (see Parents section), maintaining a safe site, keeping the children healthy, valuing diversity, ensuring risk is well assessed and managed, safe recruitment of staff and managing behaviour issues are just a few. In this section you will find policies and documents that outline our approach to safeguarding, and other materials that you may find informative.
