In cases where the school staff have cause to be concerned that a pupil may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff will follow the LA Child Protection Procedures and inform Children’s Services of their concern. This may involve a visit to the home by a Social Worker.
All employees and people who help in school are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Check to ensure that they have no convictions for abuse against children. This helps to ensure that your children are safe in school.
