Safeguarding and Inclusion

Child Protection Policy

The school has a Child Protection policy. The policy sets out the school’s responsibilities for safeguarding children (child protection). The policy also contains procedures that the school has to follow when there is a safeguarding concern.

In the interest of safeguarding children there may be occasions when the school has to consult other agencies without a parent’s prior knowledge. The school’s first concern is the child’s welfare and the school has a duty to act to protect the child at all times. Such consultation may result in a formal referral which could prompt visits from social services and/or the police.

We fully understand that this can be a very distressing set of circumstances, but we can only assure you that we follow the procedures laid down by the Coventry Safeguarding Board, a copy of which is available in school as is a copy of our own policy.
