Safeguarding children, and matters of child protection, have rightly become central to all services working with young people.
Schools have a duty to ensure that all children are safe in school; they spend more time there than almost anywhere else and relationships with adults are important, especially to younger children.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and all staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment.
We all have a part to play in keeping the pupils at Rye St Antony safe.
Please see the school's Safeguarding Policy.
Please see also the statutory guidance for schools and colleges on safeguarding children and safer recruitment, Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016,
