Summary of Child Protection Information for Visitors and Volunteers

Our school is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children

entrusted to our care.


Our school will support all children by:

Promoting a caring , safe and positive environment

Encouraging self-esteem and self-assertiveness

Effectively tackling bullying and harassment


We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse. Staff working with children are well placed to identify such abuse.


At our school in order to protect our children, we aim to:

Create an atmosphere where all our children feel secure, valued and listened to

Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse

Respond quickly, appropriately and effectively to cases of suspected abuse


Everyone working with our children, their parents and carers should be aware that their role is to:

Listen and note carefully any observations which could indicate abuse

Not to attempt to investigate once the initial concern is raised

Refer to the Designated Senior Lead (DSL) immediately

Contact the Head or the Deputy DSL if the DSL is not available

Remember disclosures of abuse or harm from children may be made at any time

If anything worries you or concerns you, report it straight away
