Safeguarding

Our Commitment To Safeguarding:

We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. Where it is believed that a child is at risk of or is suffering significant harm, the school will follow the procedures set out in the Blackburn with Darwen Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) Procedures.

Working With External Agencies:

We have a statutory obligation to share information where necessary with other external agencies such as Social Care, the Police, NHS, Education Providers and other organisation where appropriate in the interest of safeguarding and keeping children from harm. The sharing of information between agencies is vital in keeping children safe and providing other organisations with necessary information regarding a child. No information would be shared unless vital to the interests of safeguarding a young person.
