At Stoke Bishop CofE Primary School, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children, their families and carers, has a role to play.
In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. We take an ‘it can happen here’ approach where safeguarding is concerned. Everyone who comes into contact with children has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action.
Stoke Bishop Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children by:
- The provision of a safe environment in which children and young people can learn;
- Acting on concerns about a child’s welfare immediately;
- Fulfilling our legal responsibilities to identify children who may be in need of early help or who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm.
