We all have a statutory duty to “promote and safeguard the welfare or children” (section 175 Education Act 2002)

If you have any concerns about the health and safety of any child or young person in this school, or feel that something may be troubling them, you must share this information with an appropriate member of staff straight away.

Any allegations or disclosure involving a member of staff, a child’s foster carer or a volunteer at this school MUST be reported directly to the Headteacher without delay. If the allegation involves the Headteacher it must be reported to the chair of Governors, again without delay.
