Keeping Children Safe

 

Minworth Junior and Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This means that we have a detailed safeguarding policy and procedures in place which we frequently make reference to.  Parents and carers are welcome to read the policy on request or on our website. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. 

 

Staff at Minworth Junior and Infant School have annual training with regard to safeguarding and keeping children safe, complimented by termly updates. All newly appointed staff, Governors and volunteers are also thoroughly and appropriately vetted in line with national safer recruitment guidance and legistration. As part of their induction, they are also given sufficient safeguarding training.
