The School’s Child Protection Policy supports each student’s development in ways which will foster security, confidence and independence. The School staff recognises that students have a fundamental right to be protected from harm and have their safety and well-being promoted. Students cannot learn effectively unless they feel secure, therefore Child Protection is an intrinsic element of all aspects of the curriculum.
