Safeguarding & Staying Safe Online

The safety, care and well-being of all pupils is our highest priority. We take great pride in the time we spend ensuring all pupils needs are identified and supported.

We take our responsibilities for child protection very seriously.

Governors and staff have reviewed the school’s policy and procedures and these are available to parents through the school office or on our website.


Should the school believe that a pupil may have been subject to abuse, we are required to follow the child protection procedures established by the Oldham Area Child Protection Committee and inform Social Services. In the event of a child making a disclosure or causing concern a Designated safeguarding lead will initially speak to parents before contacting the local safeguarding team or social care unless school feels this may cause further concern or place a child in danger.


Everyone in our school is fully committed to help keep children safe by:

  • Providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn in school
  • Teaching children how to keep safe


Achieving these aims requires systems designed to:

  • Prevent unsuitable people working with children and young people;
  • Promote safe practice and challenge poor and unsafe practice;
  • Identify instances in which there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare, and initiate/take appropriate action to keep them safe;
  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved with providing services for children.
  • Teaching children to be safe and stay safe – as part of the curriculum.
  • Provide regular training for all staff including DSL's
  • Update all staff, Governors and volunteers of any updates to Keeping Children Safe in Education-KCSIE


All staff and Governors are required by law to follow the requirements and advice as set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education.

The link to the latest KCSIE 2021 is available to view below.
