Safeguarding in schools means
- creating safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practice
- ensuring that adults who work in the school, including volunteers, don't pose a risk to children
- making sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice
- teaching children and young people about staying safe
- maintaining an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem.
All adults who work in our school have to have a satisfactory clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
