Our school community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This means that we have Safeguarding Policies and procedures in place, which are available on the web site or from the school office on request. All staff including our volunteers and supply staff must ensure that they are aware of our procedures; parents and carers are welcome to read these. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child's best interests. There is a wealth of information available to support schools and parents to keep children safe online. The following list of websites is not exhaustive but should provide a useful starting point.
