The Children's Act 2004 states:
Every Child Matters
All children have the right to:
Enjoy and Achieve
Achieve Economic Well-being
Make a Positive Contribution
At Queen's Park C.E/URC......... Every Child really does matter!
We recognise that everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. We recognise the signifcant and important role we play in identifying concerns early and providing help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating.
We have very stringent and rigorous procedures and systems in school that support safeguarding and these are regularly updated with all staff.
If staff have concerns they have a duty to inform the Designated Safeguarding Lead:
Mrs Leadbetter or Mrs Kellett
or in their absence
Miss Hughes or Miss Bailey
