At Belgrave Primary School, we take the safeguarding of our pupils very seriously. We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a culture where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.
We aim to safeguard and promote the welfare of children by protecting them from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
We have key policies to help keep our pupils safe when in school and we welcome parents to read these documents. The aim of these policies is to ensure that our school has effective measures in place to safeguard from the potential risk of harm and that the safety and wellbeing of the children are of the highest priority in all aspects of our school’s work.
Our policies are applicable to all on and off-site activities undertaken by pupils whilst they are the responsibility of the school.
