Our school is committed to ensuring the welfare of every child:

  • It is the responsibility of all adults to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils
  • Adults who work with children are responsible for their own actions and behaviours and should avoid any conduct which could lead any reasonable person to question their motivation and intention
  • Adults must work and be seen to work in an open, transparent way.
  • The same professional standards must always be applied regardless of culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and sexual identity.
