Safeguarding

Waterthorpe NI School fully recognise their responsibilities for Safeguarding.

We have adopted the Sheffield Safeguarding Board agreed policies and procedures.

The main elements to our policy are to:

  • Ensure we practice safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.
  • Raise awareness of Safeguarding issues and equip children with the skills needed to keep them safe.
  • Develop and then implement procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse.
  • Support pupils who have been abused in accordance with his/her agreed Safeguarding plan.
  • Establish a safe environment in which children can learn and develop.
