Bolsover Church of England Junior School has a duty of care to all of its pupils.
Safeguarding arrangements at Bolsover Church of England Junior school are underpinned by three key principles:
- Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility: all Staff, Governors and Volunteers should play their full part in keeping children safe.
- That Bolsover Church of England Junior school operates a child-centred approach: a clear understanding of the needs, wishes, views and voices of children.
- That all Staff, Governors and Volunteers have a clear understanding regarding abuse and neglect in all forms; including how to identify, respond and report. This also includes knowledge in the process for allegations against professionals. Staff, Governors and Volunteers should feel confident that they can report all matters of safeguarding children in the School or College where the information will be dealt with swiftly and securely, following the correct procedures with the safety and wellbeing of the children in mind at all times.
