Safeguarding Statement

 

At this school, the health, safety and well-being of every child are our paramount concern. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. Our aim is for children to enjoy their time as pupils in this school.

 To promote a safe environment for pupils, our selection and recruitment policy includes all checks on staff and regular volunteers’ suitability, including Criminal Records Bureau checks, as recommended by Buckinghamshire County Council in accordance with current legislation.

 In accordance with our responsibilities under section 175/157 of the Education Act 2002, we have a Designated Person for Child Protection (Caroline Day) who is a member of the senior management team, and has received appropriate training for this role.  It is their responsibility to ensure that all staff in contact with children receive child protection awareness training on a regular basis.

 The procedures, which we follow, have been laid down by the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all.
