Our school follows the child protection procedures as defined by Walsall Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB www.wlscb.org.uk) and multi agency threshold guidance. We work with partners to ensure the best outcomes for children and young people.
This policy applies to all staff, volunteers and visitors to our school as safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Our belief is that “it could happen here” and “we have the interest of the children” as our priority.
This policy is shared with parents via parents briefing sessions and is available on our school website https://hillary.walsall.sch.uk/
Our children and young people understand our responsibility to keep them safe. We share a child/young person version of our Child Protection and Safeguarding policy.
All staff (this includes volunteers) are aware of the safeguarding procedures in our school and these are explained to as part of staff induction.
