How is safeguarding managed within school?
Robust mechanisms are in place throughout the school relating to safeguarding. Child Protection procedures are followed carefully, in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education 2021 Keeping children safe in Education 2021 and the school’s Child protection policy.Biddick Primary Child Protection Policy 2021
Pupils have a good understanding about being and feeling safe and know they are able to talk to adults in school whenever they are worried.
It is our duty that all children in our care are and feel safe.Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils.
In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to significant harm, ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow procedures and inform Children Services Social Care of their concern.
