Safeguarding

AIM

The aim of St Paul’s to safeguard and promote children’s welfare, safety, health and guidance by fostering an honest, open, caring and supportive climate. The children’s welfare is of paramount importance.

In order to protect and support children there will be an emphasis on:

  • Prevention through a positive and open atmosphere, teaching and pastoral support to students
  • Protection through following agreed procedures, ensuring staff are appropriately recruited, trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to Child Protection concerns
  • Support for children who may have been abused

 

The overarching safeguarding message must be to maintain an attitude of “it could happen here”.
