The welfare and safety of children who attend our school is our paramount concern. We will promote the health, well-being and safety of the pupils in all we do. Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school. The school understands the responsibilities set out under section 175 of the 2002 Education Act to work together in partnership with other agencies to help children to grow up in a healthy and safe environment.

All adults who work with children have a duty to promote their welfare and keep them safe. The Children Act sets out these responsibilities as the requirement to keep children free from maltreatment, to prevent the impairment of children’s health and development and to ensure that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.
