Safeguarding polices and guidance can be accessed from staff safeguarding information boards and the school shared drive.
Safeguarding information is displayed throughout school from lanyards, notice boards in various areas for different audiences, computer home screen and guidance in staff toilets.
Safeguarding is the responsibility of all staff
The safeguarding term meet regularly to review and challenge actions and outcomes, this process ensures that as a school we are always reviewing our safeguarding practice. Each year the headteacher completes the Local Authority 175 audit to ensure robust safeguarding policies, procedures and practice in school. The results of this audit and any subsequent action plan are shared with governors. Governors also check that any actions are completed within appropriate time lines.
