Edith Cavell Primary School places safeguarding at the heart of all that we do. Our rigorous safeguarding policy, practices and ethos prioratise ensuring that every child is safe and protected from harm.
We work with parents, staff, governors and all stakeholders to ensure that all children and young people in the school are protected from harm, both while at school and when away from the school premises.
This means we will always work to:
- Protect children and young people at our school from maltreatment;
- Prevent impairment of our children’s and young people’s mental and physical health or development;
- Ensure that children and young people at our school grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
- Undertake that role so as to enable children and young people at our school to have the best outcomes.
