Here at St Paul's safeguarding is paramount. It informs all of our decision making and we do all we can to ensure our children are safe, happy and feel well supported.
All staff are vigilant and safeguarding conversations will always be prioritised and part of our daily dialogue. We have a child-friendly version of our safeguarding policy that teachers also share with their classes. (This can be found in the link at the bottom of the page).
We meet regularly as a safeguarding team and staff are mindful to notice and share concerns. The team consists of staff from all avenues of school life so there are a range of people for children and adults to talk to. This means a range of perspectives are seen.
We also have 'Talk Time' daily so children can speak with a mental health first aid trained staff member about anything they would like to share.
