Safeguarding & Online Safety
Grayshott CE Primary School recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. Child protection forms part of the school’s safeguarding responsibilities.
Safeguarding Children at Grayshott CE Primary School
Grayshott CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place which are available on our policies page. All staff, (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Parents’ and carers are encouraged to read the policy which is available below or on request from the school office.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
