At Shield Row Primary School, we regard the safeguarding of children as our main priority. We believe that we all have the right to be happy, to be safe and to learn. We all have the responsibility to make this happen.

We will ensure that:

  • the welfare of the child remains paramount;

  • all children whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/ or sexual identity have the right to be protected from harm;

  • all suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately;

  • all staff and volunteers working at our school have a responsibility to report concerns to the  Designated Safeguarding Lead for Safeguarding: Miss Cooke, or one of school's Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.
