Safeguarding children and young people means protecting them from abuse or neglect; it means creating an environment where children feel safe, supporting their learning and development.
It is the duty and responsibility of everyone to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. All staff, volunteers and regular visitors must have a good understanding of our safeguarding policies and practices.
If you have any concerns about the safety and welfare of a child you should report it. If you feel a child is at immediate risk of danger, the police should be contacted. Other concerns should be reported to the school safeguarding contacts or via Dorset Council.
Online safety information can be found on our online safety page.
