Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy


In Moor Row Primary School the health, safety and well-being of our pupils is of paramount importance to all the adults who work or volunteer here.  We are committed to providing the best possible education for each individual pupil and this can only be achieved within an environment where pupils are happy, safe and confident.  Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils is everyone's responsibility.  Everyone who comes into contact with our pupils has a role to play and this is reflected in the high status given to safeguarding in our school.

There are many aspects to our work in safeguarding and protecting our pupils.  The four main elements are:

Prevention:  We work hard to create a positive school atmosphere where pupils feel safe and secure.  We provide high quality teaching and pastoral support and we ensure that our pupils know what to do if they ever feel worried or unsafe.

Protection:  We ensure that all staff are appropriately recruited, trained and supported which enables them to respond to safeguarding concerns in an appropriate and sensitive manner.

Support:  Staff are fully supported in their work to provide the highest quality care and support for all pupils.  Particular support is given to pupils who are considered to be vulnerable.

Action:  All adults working in our school receive high quality training and support which assists them in making informed, timely and relevant decisions and taking appropriate action to ensure all pupils are safe and have the best outcomes.



All of our pupils have the right to protection and they have the right to be safe.  It is with this in mind that we have produced our comprehensive our Overarching Safeguarding Statement and Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be accessed below.  A parent leaflet summarises our approach to safeguarding.
