Bredenbury Primary School has a duty of care and responsibility towards pupils, parents/carers and staff. The care and safety of the individual is the key issue behind this document.
We will endeavour to protect children from maltreatment: preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking actions to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
Where a child is suffering significant harm, or is likely to do so, action should be taken to protect that child. Action should also be taken to promote the welfare of a child in need of additional support, even if they are not suffering harm or are at immediate risk.
