Safeguarding at South Wellfield First School

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children.  As such, we expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.  

We define safeguarding as being broader than ‘child protection.’  Safeguarding in our school confirms what we do for all children, applies across the whole school, and is linked to our overall culture, ethos, and the principles we follow in school. Safeguarding in our school is child-centred and always ensures that we work in the best interests of the child to ensure that school is a safe place for all our children and young people to be.  The first part of our Wellfield Way is 'safe' and its our biggest priority as only children who feel safe, can learn.

We  expect ALL in school to understand that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. 

If you have any safeguarding concerns in your time at our school, please speak to one of our designated safeguarding leads.
