Safeguarding Children is everyone’s responsibility…
‘Safeguarding means protecting a citizen’s health, wellbeing and human rights; enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. It is an integral part of providing high-quality health care. Safeguarding children, young people and adults is a collective responsibility’.
Here at Mercenfeld safeguarding the children that attend our school is at the heart of everything we do.
We recognise our responsibilities include:
- creating a safe environment for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices;
- ensuring that adults who work in school, including volunteers, are able to work with children safely, and are properly trained and equipped to do so;
- teaching children and young people to stay safe; and
- maintaining an environment in which children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem
If you are worried or concerned about a child’s safety you should report it to either a DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead) in school, telephone 01530 243151 or email email@example.com
