Unless you are a professional who works with children or adults, you will not have to give your name, and as long as you are not a professional who works with children, your conversation will be treated confidentially.
All our staff, students and volunteers are appropriately trained in Safeguarding and all have current Enhanced DBS checks. We follow KCSIE guidelines for ‘Safer Recruitment’ when employing new staff. We are trained in the ‘Prevent Duty’ and take this very seriously.
Any parents/carers/volunteers must also complete our safeguarding checks including a DBS check before helping in class.
Please see our Policies page for our Safeguarding and other related Policies.
