Child Protection

 
 

We believe that to keep our pupils safe is our core responsibility.  

The school has a robust policy and procedures to protect our pupils.  

The Designated Child Protection Teacher is Mrs Watson (Year 7 teacher).

Mrs Spratt (Nursery Leader) and Mrs Clifford (Year 1 teacher) are the Deputy Designated Teacher for Child Protection.

As well as being available to deal with specific child protection issues they have a wider remit.  This role includes:

  1.  Ensuring the school's policies and procedures are consistent with recommended standards;
  2.  Providing training to staff in dealing with safeguarding issues;
  3.  Making themselves and their roles known to all stakeholders, especially the pupils;
  4.  Equipping pupils to keep themselves safe and how to ask for help when required.
