Policies, procedures and risk assessments are fully in place to ensure the safety, welfare and care of our pupils. Governors play an active role in ensuring that procedures are carried out. Mrs Hodgkinson is the Safeguarding Lead and Ms Higgins will deputise for her in matters of child protection in his absenceThe protection of children is everyone’s concern. The school is required to take any reasonable action to safeguard its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, we are obliged to follow the procedures established by the Sheffield CC and inform the Social Services of our concerns.
