We recognise our legal duty, under s175 Education Act 2002 and the 1989 Children Act, and we take seriously our responsibilities to protect and safeguard the interests of all pupils
We recognise that effective child protection work requires sound procedures, good inter-agency cooperation and a team that is competent and confident in responding to child protection situations
