We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children and adults feel respected and valued. We maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’ where safeguarding is concerned and promote a culture of openness where children and adults are able to talk and are listened to.
