About Safeguarding

Leaders have made sure that the school is a caring and safe place for pupils to learn. Pupils benefit from the positive relationships that they have with staff and other pupils. Adults have high expectations for pupils’ learning and behaviour. Pupils respond well to these. When children do occasionally fall out, they quickly ‘make peace’ with each other. Pupils are confident that if they reported any concerns, including about bullying, these would be dealt with properly by staff.
