Safeguarding

ST GEORGE’S SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

At St George’s School we strongly recognise the need for vigilant awareness of safeguarding issues with a population of young people who are especially vulnerable.

We do this in the following way:

  • All staff have appropriate training and induction so that they understand their roles and responsibilities and are confident about carrying them out.
  • Staff, pupils, parents and governors feel secure that they could raise any issues or concerns about the safety or welfare of children and know that they will be listened to and taken seriously.
  • By responding to allegations appropriately with full investigation and, if appropriate, implement the disciplinary and appeals procedures
  • This is achieved by maintaining an ethos of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and protecting staff.
  • We assess all risk carefully that children and young people encounter and taking all necessary steps to minimise and manage them;
  • This is supported by clear behaviour, anti-bullying and child protection policies, appropriate induction and training, briefing and discussion of relevant issues.
  • This is supported by working closely in partnership with all those involved with the young person and relevant learning in line with current legislature and guidelines.
  • We require clubs, societies, groups hiring St George’s School facilities, to have and abide by their own code, policies and procedures which a copy must be shown to us.
