“Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance as:
protecting children from maltreatment;
preventing impairment of children’s health or development;
ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care;
and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.” (KCSIE, 2018)
Villiers Primary School are committed to Safeguarding children and young people.
Villiers Primary School and the wider Shine Academies Multi Acadmey Trust are committed to safeguarding children and young people and we expect everyone who work in and visits our school to share this commitment.
Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may worry them.
