Safeguarding Statement

At Westrop we believe that Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility, we have a strong commitment to safeguard all of our children, ensuring their health, safety and well-being in all areas of our practice. To this end we aim to:

  • Ensure all our staff have a clear understanding of and commitment to their responsibilities towards children’s safeguarding
  • The school has clear procedures and key personnel in place to ensure safeguarding in all aspects of school life
  • The school specifically incorporates the teaching of health and keeping safe within the wider curriculum
  • The school audits its safeguarding practices on an annual basis to ensure we meet all statutory requirements and remain vigilant around all aspects of safeguarding

The difference between Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding is what we do to keep all children safe from any kind of harm, Child Protection is the support and protection put in place for the children most at risk of significant harm.

If you have a concern about a child being at risk of significant harm, please contact the school DSL on 762897 or 762341 for support.
