Safeguarding

Safeguarding Information: 

We are committed to promoting the welfare and safeguarding of all children at All Saints Church School and expect everyone here to share this commitment. In line with our safeguarding policy and statutory guidance we have clear procedures in school for responding to any concerns about a child’s safety or wellbeing. If you have a concern about a child’s welfare or worries that they are being abused, please contact one of the safeguarding team in school.

Visiting or joining our school:

A member of the office staff ensures that the school gate is kept locked during the school day, so all visitors are asked to report to the main entrance. Please be mindful that for everybody’s safety, identification procedures will be carried out; a copy of which are displayed by the office for your information.

All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.
