Safeguarding

We have the greatest respect for our Safeguarding responsibility and hope you share this view. School staff play an essential role in protecting children from abuse. We have regular contact with children and young people so are in a strong position to identify signs of abuse and neglect.

We:

  • create safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices
  • ensure that adults who work in the school, including volunteers, don't pose a risk to children
  • make sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice
  • teach children and young people about staying safe
  • maintain an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem. 

 

We have a number of Safeguarding officers in school identified below but ALL our staff share our responsibility and have received safeguarding training to help support children who may be at risk.

If you feel a child may be at risk of harm or abuse, please do not hesitate to speak to one of us or you can report your concerns anonymously to MASH ( Devon's Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub)  their details can be found here: https://new.devon.gov.uk/educationandfamilies/child-protection/making-a-mash-enquiry
