SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY
Keeping children safe is at the heart of all we do. As a school we believe that all children have the right to be protected from harm, to feel safe and have their emotional and social needs met. A happy sociable child will achieve better educationally. All staff at school have regular safeguarding training and have a responsibility to identify children who need support or are suffering or are likely to suffer harm.
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.
OUR SAFEGUARDING AND CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
Moseley Church of England Primary School fully recognises the responsibility it has surrounding the safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of all children.
You can find out more about our policy in our Safeguarding Policy (see below) which is updated annually and is available from our school office upon request.
Our policy applies to all staff, visitors and volunteers working in the school, including governors.
All visitors will be required to read and implement our Safeguarding Information for Visitors.
