Keeping Children Safe

We work closely together with parents, carers, community figures and a range of external professionals in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our pupils.

We follow closely the statutory guidance from the Department for Education.

We have an explicit duty to safeguard and protect children from abuse as defined in the Children Act (2004); the Education Act (2002 and 2011); DfE guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018) and the 2020 statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education (2022).

We keep everyone safe through our Safeguarding and Child Protection procedures; our PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) curriculum; our online safety curriculum and through pastoral support.
