Safeguarding and Child protection
Safeguarding our children is very important and we take concerns seriously. Schools and colleges and their staff are an important part of the wider safeguarding system for children.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfill this responsibility effectively, all staff at St George's make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
We believe that at St George’s we should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child.
We recognise the importance of providing an environment within our setting that will help children feel safe and respected. We recognise the importance of enabling children to talk openly and to feel confident that they will be listened to.
We recognise that all adults within our school, including permanent and temporary staff, volunteers and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm.
We will work with parents to build an understanding of our responsibilities to ensure the welfare of all children, including the need for referrals to other agencies in some situations.
If you have any concerns please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Carolyn Divers, at school.
If, as a member of the public, you have concern's about a child's welfare, you can phone the Public Service Hub directly on 0161 342 4101.
