Safeguarding at High Park

At High Park we have a positive safeguarding culture, where ‘Safeguarding is EVERYONE’S Responsibility’.

High Park School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of handbooks, protocols and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our trust policies. All staff, volunteers and supply receive training in Safeguarding, Child Protection and Prevent strategies.

 

 

Everyone who comes into contact with pupils and their families has a role to play in Safeguarding. Everyone over 16 working or volunteering at the school is subject to an enhanced DBS check that prevents unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups including children.

All school staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify early signs and indicators of abuse, to raise concerns early and provide help, comfort, support for children.

At High Park we work closely with our families and other agencies including health services, social care, early help co-ordinator and other specialist services to promote the welfare of pupils and protect them from harm.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a pupil’s welfare.

Where possible, we will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the pupil’s welfare.
