Safeguarding the welfare and well-being of our pupils and protecting them from harm is our main responsibility.  Safeguarding encompasses issues such as child protection, pupil health and safety, online safety, bullying/cyber bullying, child on child abuse, appropriate medical provision and drugs and substance misuse. 

Our staff have regular training to make sure that we have an excellent understanding of safeguarding issues and have the skills to deal with any issues that arise. Our recruitment procedures are incredibly robust and the continual professional development our staff receive ensure that we all uphold our Christian vision and values.

Ensuring your child's safety and well-being are two of the most important responsibilities we have. Schools are legally required to follow set procedures and the Local Authority requires the Headteacher to report any obvious or suspected cases of child abuse, which includes non-accidental injury, severe physical neglect, emotional abuse and/or sexual abuse.
This procedure is intended to protect children at risk. Our Child Protection Policy is available below.
Anyone who works in an unsupervised capacity with children, whether paid or voluntary, will require DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) certification.

If you are concerned about the welfare or well-being of a particular child, please do not hesitate to contact staff at the school in order to discuss your concerns further.  Alternatively, you could contact either the Wiltshire Council Children's Service or the NSPCC.

Everyone in our school community has a responsibility to keep children and young people safe from harm. If you believe a child or young person is at immediate risk of serious harm or injury, or you believe a criminal offence has been committed, call the police on 999. If you believe a child or young person is at risk of significant harm, neglect or injury, report your concerns to the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0300 456 0108.

If you have significant safeguarding concerns about someone who is working or volunteering with children and young people, call 0300 456 0108 and ask to speak to the Designated Officer for Allegations (DOFA) for advice, or email dofaservice@wiltshire.gov.uk
