SAFEGUARDING

Birchwood C of E Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment by contributing to:

  • Providing a safe environment for children to learn and thrive
  • Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, by taking appropriate action, with the aim of ensuring that they are kept safe at all times

To achieve this, we:

  • Promote safe practice
  • Identify instances where there are causes for concern about a child’s welfare
  • Initiate and take appropriate action to keep children safe
  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children

We have therefore established a Safeguarding Team which meets on a monthly basis and allows Child Protection to be effectively embedded throughout school by bringing together a group of staff from different specialised areas. The purpose of the Safeguarding Team is to allow key members of staff to be representatives and ensure that their sub-team are aware of current cases and vulnerable children.
