The Children's Act 2004 states:
Every Child Matters
All children have the right to:
- Be Safe
- Be Healthy
- Enjoy and Achieve
- Achieve Economic Well-being
- Make a Positive Contribution
At Sherdley Primary we believe every child really does matter!
We recognise everyone that comes in contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. We recognise the significant and important role we play in identifying concerns early and providing help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating. We base our safeguarding principles on keeping our children safe, using the DfE document Keeping Children Safe In Education (KCSIE) 2020.
We have very stringent and rigorous procedures and systems in school that support safeguarding and these are regularly updated with all staff.
If staff have concerns they have a duty to inform the Designated Safeguarding Lead:
or in her absence
Mr McCoy or Mrs Bennett
