Child Protection Policy (Extract) 2012-2013

The school recognises that children have the right to be protected from all forms of violence, to be kept safe from harm and given proper care by those looking after them.

We recognise our statutory obligation to make a referral either to the social services or to the police when we suspect that a pupil is suffering abuse or when a pupil makes an allegation that he/she is suffering abuse.
