The school has adopted the definition of the term ‘Safeguarding’ used in the Children Act 2004

In summary this is:

  • protecting children from maltreatment;
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development;
  • ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • undertaking the role so as to enable those children to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully.

The school’s safeguarding arrangements cover all aspects of life at school, in particular addressing these issues:

  • health and safety;
  • bullying;
  • other harassment and discrimination, including racism;
  • physical intervention;
  • meeting the needs of pupils with medical conditions;
  • provision of medical first aid;
  • drug and substance abuse;
  • off site visits;
  • intimate care;
  • internet and communications safety;
  • physical security of the school site;
  • protection from maltreatment; and
  • recruitment and vetting of staff and visitors to the school.
