Child Protection and Safeguarding

All our staff have completed Access NI (police checked) and we have a Child Protection Policy drawn up by the Staff and the Governors. This policy is reviewed each year. The safety and welfare of each child is our paramount responsibility.

Through our pastoral care policy we endeavour to provide our pupils with:

  1. A warm, pleasant and safe environment where each child is helped to develop mentally, physically, socially and emotionally.
  2. The right to be listened to and respected so that self-confidence and self-esteem can be developed.
  3. Opportunities to take responsibility and develop clear attitudes and values in a moral context.
  4. The ability to make and sustain good relationships.
  5. The right to be treated as a valued member of our school community regardless of home background or academic ability.

We also have a `Worry Post Box` into which pupils can post concerns and worries that they might have.

If you are worried or have a problem the following websites may be of help.
