Wardle Academy – Safeguarding / Child Protection Policy

Wardle Academy fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and support pupils in school.

There are three main elements to our Safeguarding Policy:

1. Prevention - to create a positive school atmosphere where teaching and pastoral staff support pupils in school.
2. Protection - by following agreed procedures, ensuring staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to Child Protection concerns/disclosures).
3. Support - to pupils and school staff and to children who may have been abused or suffering possible harm.

This policy applies to all staff and volunteers in school.
