GLF Schools

Safeguarding Children

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a child protection and safeguarding policy which outlines procedures which all members of the school community are expected to follow. This policy is on the school’s website and can be requested from the school office.

We expect that all visitors read our safeguarding leaflet on entry into the school and abide by the guidance it provides.

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 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.
