The Area Child Protection Committee, with members from Social Care, Health Departments, Police, NSPCC, the Education Department and others, have published procedures on Child Protection. The procedures give clear instructions for school staff to inform Social Care immediately of any allegation of abuse or non-accidental injury. It is the duty of the school to follow these instructions. Parents/carers are informed as soon as possible. A copy of the school’s Child Protection Policy is available in the policy section of this school website. If you have any questions about safety and security, please address them to a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
