Which includes Child Protection

Keeping children safe is our highest priority. Our safeguarding policy will adhere to and go beyond statutory requirements and will ensure that all students will feel safe and free from any form of harm while they are in the care of the school. The maintenance of the Single Central Record will be the responsibility of a named person and will record the names and details not only of current staff but also those who have left the school, and their destinations.

Child protection procedures will comply with those outlined nationally and by the Local Safeguarding Children's Board (LSCB). There will be a named and appropriately trained Designated Safeguarding Lead and Safeguarding Governor. There will be annual staff and governor training and new staff who join mid-year will be provided with 1:1 training so that they are familiar with the school's protocols and procedures.
