Schools are charged with maintaining a safe, supportive environment which protects the rights and needs of children at all times. School staff have regular contact with children and young people, and a responsibility to help to identify signs of children in need of additional support or protection accordingly. Together, these responsibilities are called safeguarding.


At East Wichel Primary School and Nursery, the safety and welfare of our children is at the heart of everything we do.

We recognise our safeguarding responsibilities to include:

creating a safe environment for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices.
ensuring that adults who work in school, including volunteers, are able to work with children safely, and are properly trained and equipped to do so.
teaching children and young people to stay safe.
maintaining an environment in which children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem.
