We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers, governors and extended service providers, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that the child's welfare is our paramount concern.
All staff believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe & stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child.
