SAfeguarding Policy

Culford has a statutory duty under the Children Act to safeguard and promote the welfare of all its pupils. As such, the Assistant Head (Pastoral) is responsible for all child protection and welfare issues and have the right “to do what is reasonable in all the circumstances of the case for the purpose of safeguarding or promoting the child’s welfare”. 

The Act gives Social Care authorities the duty to take whatever steps are necessary to determine whether each pupil’s welfare is being adequately safeguarded and promoted, and this can involve entry to inspect the school’s premises and records, and to see and interview pupils. 

Child protection requirements must be known and observed by all adult staff on site, including temporary, supply and ancillary staff and volunteers working with children. Therefore all new members of staff are made fully aware of requirements via an induction programme and all staff are required to attend child protection training every three years. 

For the avoidance of doubt, whole School Policy Handbooks take precedence where necessary.
