Our staff and Governors are committed to safeguarding the pupils at this school both during and outside of school term times (including during any periods of absence). The health, safety and wellbeing of all our pupils is taken seriously and all staff and volunteers are aware of their responsibilities and will do all they can to provide a safe, caring and positive environment where children feel happy and secure. We expect all staff, volunteers, parents, carers and the wider school community to share our commitment to keeping our children safe. All visitors to our school are reminded of their safeguarding responsibility and any who do not have recognised, currently valid DBS clearance will be accompanied by a member of staff at all times.
