Safeguarding and Keeping Your Child Safe
At Orchard Manor School, safeguarding is our priority and underpins everything we do.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As such we work hard to maintain a culture in which staff, pupils, parents and governors feel able to articulate concerns comfortably; safe in the knowledge that effective, appropriate action will be taken.
When there are concerns about a child’s welfare, we will need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that doing this would be detrimental to the child's welfare.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our commitment to safeguarding, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed here.
