The Safeguarding of children in our care is paramount.
The School Safeguarding Team are:
Designated Child Protection / Prevent Lead - Mr Ian Rumbelow.
Deputy Safeguarding / Prevent Lead - Miss Caroline Middleton
All staff and volunteers that work in school are subject to stringent background checks. Adults coming into to school must read and agree to the following guidance.
We use safer recruitment procedures and all visitors to our site sign in and out.
As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability. All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faith and beliefs.
Effective communication between teachers and parents will ensure that all matters are dealt with as soon as possible.
