Safeguarding at Malmesbury Park
The Governors recognise that children have a fundamental right to be protected from harm or exploitation and that pupils cannot learn effectively unless they feel secure. The Governors will, therefore, provide a school environment which promotes self-confidence, a feeling of worth and the knowledge that pupil’s concerns will be listened to and acted upon.
Governors, staff and volunteers in this school understand the importance of working in partnership with children, their parents/ carers and other agencies in order to promote children’s welfare.
The Governors will also ensure that the school carries out its statutory duties to report suspected Child Abuse to the Children’s Services Directorate (Social Care) and to assist that Directorate acting on behalf of children in need or enquiring into allegations of child abuse. Schools recognise the contribution they can make to protect and support pupils in their care.
The Local Authority is committed to ensuring that best practice is adopted when working with all children and young people, offering them support and protection and accepts that it has a legal and moral responsibility to implement procedures, to provide a duty of care for young people, to safeguard their well-being and to protect them from abuse.
