Child Protection

All members of staff at the school are responsible for the safety and protection of the children who attend. If there are concerns regarding neglect or physical, emotional, financial or sexual abuse then under the All Wales Child Protection Procedures staff are duty-bound to report the concern to the Child Protection Officer. The Child Protection Officer may consult with professional colleagues as well as other relevant agencies such as Health and Social Services. Following these discussions we may be obliged to make a referral to the Social Services Department who will decide on the next course of action. Due to the nature of the allegations it may not always be appropriate to discuss matters with parents prior to making a referral. The responsibility for investigating allegations lies with Social Services and the Police.
