Principles, Partnership and Prevention

  1. Children have a right to be safe.
  2. Adults have a duty of care to protect children
  3. Parents have a right to be informed.
The school will inform parents of any concerns about their children (providing it does not compromise their safety) and will help and support them as necessary.
The school will actively seek to prevent children suffering abuse and neglect through the development of an open culture that informs children of their rights and encourages them to speak of any concerns. The school will also address the issue of children’s safety through the curriculum.
