Keeping Children Safe in Education
At St Margaret’s, we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils.
We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of different types of abuse and follow clear procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. We are committed to ‘Keeping Children Safe In Education’. This is statutory guidance from the Department for Education issued under Section 175 of the Education Act 2002, the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 and the Education (Non-Maintained Special Schools) (England) Regulations 2015. Schools and colleges must have regard to it when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
