Our Duty as an Education Provider
Our school recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils and staff. We will endeavor to provide a safe and welcoming environment where everyone is respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow our procedures to ensure that the children receive effective support, protection and justice.
Please note that in accordance with the North East Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Partnership policies and procedures, should a child make a disclosure in school then we will contact Children’s Services who may request that the child/children are kept at school until further notice.
