Parents’ Voice:

Safeguarding

Pashley Down Infant School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors. We aim to promote a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety as well as others.

We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This page has been created to offer important information to parents/carers regarding issues surrounding Safeguarding & Child Protection.

  • We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support children, families, staff and visitors at school.
  • We ensure that all staff receive appropriate training, guidance and support to undertake the effective safeguarding of children.
