Safeguarding

Section 157 of the Education Act 2002 places a statutory responsibility on the school to protect and promote the welfare of the children and young people in our care.

 

Two key pieces of guidance form the framework under which we promote the welfare of children in school as follows:

 

 

In these documents, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

 

  • protecting children from maltreatment;
  • preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development;
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

 

‘Children’ includes everyone under the age of 18.

 

We are committed to working closely with parents and carers for the benefit of our pupils. We also work a range of professionals to support our pupils and their families to get the right help at the right time.
