Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy
Barrow U.R.C Primary School - WHOLE SCHOOL POLICY FOR SAFEGUARDING & CHILD PROTECTION 2020-2021
The purpose of this safeguarding policy is to ensure every child who is a registered pupil at our school is safe and protected from harm. 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 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 at our school to have the best outcomes.
This policy will give clear direction to staff, volunteers, visitors and parents about expectations and our legal responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children at our school.
Our school fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children from harm and to support and promote the welfare of all children who are registered pupils at our school.
This policy applies to all pupils, staff, parents, governors, volunteers and visitors.
This policy should be read in conjunction with the School's Safeguarding Portfolio.
