Keeping children safe
during lockdown and beyond
Keeping children safe
Our school recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils. We will endeavor to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow our procedures to ensure that the children receive effective support, protection and justice.
Further information regarding Safeguarding in NE Lincs can be found at www.safernel.co.uk.
Please note that in accordance with the LSCB policies and procedures, should a child make a disclosure in school then we will contact Children’s Services who may request that the child/children are kept at school until further notice. If you have any queries or questions regarding this matter please contact Tracey Woods or Kim Leach.
