The safety and wellbeing of our young people is a key priority for everyone at Parrs Wood High School and we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff, volunteers and our wider school community to share this commitment.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:
- protecting children from maltreatment;
- preventing impairment of children's health or development;
- ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
- taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
Our highly qualified team of Safeguarding staff provide an inclusive, child centred approach to all safeguarding, child protection and welfare matters.
If you have a concern for a child's safety or welfare:
Should parents or members of the public have any safeguarding or welfare concerns about a student one of our students or indeed any young person in the local community they should report it.
