Norbury School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. This means that we ensure that everyone working in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with children.

All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as “Designated Child Protection Officers” in school in compliance with the “sharing of information” guidance. It also means that we have staff members who are specifically trained and nominated as the Designated Child Protection Officers (CPOs) within school. These staff are the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: protecting 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 action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Safeguarding is not just about protecting children from deliberate harm.  It relates to aspects of school life including:
