Safeguarding Statement

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, providing a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The school operates a stringent Child Protection policy, in line with Cambridgeshire Area Child Protection guidelines. All volunteers will be subject to a clear DBS check and will be required to provide references.

The school will therefore be alert to signs of abuse and neglect and will follow the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Children Partnership Board’s procedures to ensure that children receive appropriate and effective support and protection. 


Parents/carers should know that the law requires all school staff to pass on information which gives rise to a concern about a child’s welfare, including risk from neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse. Parents/carers should know that records of safeguarding concerns may be kept about their child.  They should be informed that school staff will seek, in general, to discuss any concerns with them including referrals to other agencies.
