Safeguarding

St. Peter's C. of E. Primary School is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care.

Our school will support all children by:

  • promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school

We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse.  Staff working with children are well placed to identify such abuse.

At St. Peter's C. of E. Primary School, in order to protect our children, we aim to:

  • Create an atmosphere where all our children feel safe and secure, valued and listened to
  • Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse
  • Respond quickly, appropriately and effectively to cases of suspected abuse

If you have a concern that a child is being harmed, is at risk of harm, or you receive a disclosure  you must contact the following member of staff  member as quickly as possible.
