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.
