Keeping our children safe is our number one priority


Safeguarding arrangements at All Saints' Federation of schools is underpinned by three key principles:


- Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility: all staff, governors and volunteers play their full part in keeping our children safe.


- All Saints' Federation of schools operates a child-centred approach: a clear understanding of the needs, wishes, views and voices of children.


- All staff, governors and volunteers have a clear understanding regarding abuse and neglect in all forms; including how to identify, respond and report. This also includes knowledge in the process for allegations against professionals.  All staff and several governors undertook safeguarding training in September 2018. 


Governors closely oversee the school's work and monitor the annual S175 Safeguarding audit which the federation of schools undertakes. An update is provided to All Saints' governors on a termly basis.


Our lead governor for safeguarding is Sally Theakston.

Our safeguarding policies: approved on 25th September 2018



All of our safeguarding policies are reviewed by the school's Full Governing Board annually and shared with all staff and volunteers (including our university trainee teachers).


The policies are federation policies and apply to both the Infant school and to the Junior school.


Our main Child Protection and Safeguarding policy contains key information on how we handle safeguarding concerns across both schools, as well as specific information and guidance on issues such as peer-to-peer concerns.
