At Penn Hall School we are committed to safeguarding children and young people and we expect everyone who works in our school to share this commitment
Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may worry them
We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children.
We understand that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility and everyone who comes into contact with our children and families has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action.
We make every effort to provide a safe and welcoming environment underpinned by a culture of openness where both children and adults feel secure, able to talk and believe that they are being listened to.
We will adopt a ‘child-centred’ approach to safeguarding and child protection and we will act in the ‘best interests’ of our children
We ensure that everyone is aware of their safeguarding responsibilities
We provide staff, volunteers and governors with the framework, training and support they need to keep pupils and students safe and secure in our school and to inform parents and guardians how we will safeguard their children whilst they are in our care.
