What is Safeguarding?

At Widewell Primary Academy the safeguarding of children is our priority. This means that we have ensured that everyone working in the school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with pupils. It also means that we have staff members who are specifically trained in Child Protection procedures. We have a wide range of policies which ensure that we are in line with current safeguarding practices.

On rare occasions, our concern about a child may mean we have to consult other agencies, such as the Police, or Social Services. The procedures we follow have been laid down by Plymouth Local Authority.



By working closely with everyone concerned, we firmly believe that we will continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our learners.
