Safeguarding and Prevent Duty

We are committed to keeping every child safe and for this reason, we ensure that any adult working in school undertake rigorous criminal checks. We insist that any visitor to school who will be working in areas where children have access has clearance and photographic evidence of who they are. We pride ourselves in giving children “A Voice” and for this reason we investigate any allegation a child makes. All staff have had Child Protection training.
