Child Protection (inc. Children in Care) & Safeguarding Policy

‘Schools, colleges and other educational providers have a pivotal role to play in safeguarding children and promoting welfare’ (Working Together To Safeguard Children, 2018).

Amendments to the 2002 Education Act places a statutory duty on both the Local Authority and Governing Bodies of schools to implement the Child Protection Policy and practice.

This policy applies to all staff, governors, visitors and volunteers working within the school environment and activities which take students outside the school environment on school-designated activities.
