We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where students are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that students receive effective support, protection and justice.
We work closely with many other organisations to support the students and their families, including Early Help, Operation Encompass and Children’s Social Care.
