Safeguarding is everybody's responsibility.
‘Everyone working in or for our school service shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to:
- providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn and develop in our school
- identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in our school setting.
Scholes School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way.
Whilst at school, children suffering from abuse may display challenging behaviour. At times this may impact on other children either directly or indirectly. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order to support all of our pupils.
