Child Protection Statement
Our core safeguarding principles are:
- The school’s responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children is of paramount importance
- Safer children make more successful learners
- Policies will be reviewed at least annually unless an incident or new legislation or guidance suggests the need for an interim review.
The Child protection policy along with other school documents (including, Safer Recruitment, Staff Handbook, Managing Allegations Against Staff policy, Behaviour Policy, Intimate Care Policy, Whistleblowing Policy and Acceptable Internet Use Policy) ensures safeguarding procedures are followed at Slated Row School.
The Child protection policy is available in the policies sections on the school website.
We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
The procedures contained in this policy apply to all staff and governors and are consistent with those of the Milton Keynes Safeguarding Children ‘s Board (MKSCB). MKSCB works partnership with schools including Slated Row to promote the welfare of children and young people, and to ensure they are safe from harm.
As part of our work we will receive information from partner agencies, such as the police and social care. In the interest of the child or young person, this information will only occur to help us protect and promote the welfare of your son or daughter. When there is any sharing of information, we will discuss this with you to enable a partnership approach.
