Safeguarding: information for parents
- Our school recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils. We will endeavor to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
- We have put together this booklet to give you some information about how we meet our safeguarding and child protection responsibilities. We have also included some tips to help you to keep your child safe.
- Our designated people for safeguarding pupils are: Mr A Greenhalgh, Mrs Kendal, Ms Payne and Mr G West.
- If you have any questions about this booklet, or our safeguarding pupils policy please contact any of the above.
