Safeguarding children and adults is a top priority in our school. It is therefore important that all staff, volunteers, Governors and our community work together on this. Our recruitment and selection processes are rigorous and comply with all relevant guidance. All Staff including volunteers are cleared by DBS. All staff receive training and are aware of safeguarding and child protection issues and responsibilities which we adhere to rigorously.
We are also an Operation Encompass school and so work closely with the police where there have been incidents of Domestic Abuse in the family home.
