Laycock Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its pupils.
Safeguarding is defined as:
- Protecting children from maltreatment
- Preventing impairment of children’s health or development
- Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
- Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances.
Our school fulfills the local and national responsibilities in line with the following:
We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda.
In addition to these statutory documents, we have a Laycock Safeguarding policy:
Safeguarding Policy 2020 (INSERT)
All other policies liked to this one, such as School Behaviour and Code of Conduct can be found here.
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.
