Safeguarding children and young people means protecting them from abuse or neglect. It means supporting their learning and development and creating an environment in which children feel safe.
At Salway Ash School, It is the duty and responsibility of everyone to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
Anyone working or volunteering within our school must take time to read our safeguarding policies, code of conduct and Keeping Children safe in education.
These policies are attached below however we have a great many other policies in place to safeguard our children and to improve their education and well-being. Most policies are available on our documentation pages however feel free to ask in school for any other policies you may wish to see.

We all have a personal responsibility to notice when a child or young person may be at risk of harm and pass our concerns to someone who can act to protect them.
Our staff and governors have been trained on safeguarding in line with the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016 document and have taken part in ‘Prevent’ training to further understand risks our children may be exposed to in the world today.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Crew who is the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
