Keeping Children Safe
At Royal Rise Primary School we are fully committed to our statutory duty to safeguard all pupils.
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating. Schools and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children.
Schools should work with social care, the police, health services and other services to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
Safeguarding is a wide ranging and overarching policy of our school which includes Child Protection, Health and Safety and e-Safety.
Please read our Child Protection Policy and we have also produced a Safeguarding Children Leaflet for Parents and a Prevent Strategy Information Leaflet for Parents.
If you have any concerns around safeguarding matters please contact any of the staff below:
