At Cadbury Heath Primary School all staff, both teaching and non-teaching, have a responsibility to care for children and to take appropriate action if there are concerns around a child's welfare.
This may also involve referrals and liaising with outside agencies including the Access and Response Team (ART).
There are clearly defined procedures around safeguarding and all staff are kept up to date with these procedures. Last whole school training was updated in September 2020.
In addition we ensure that all staff are safe to work with children and have up to date DBS checks and that we follow safer recruitment practises.
The welfare of the children is paramount in our school.
Our full safeguarding policy can be found on our policies page.
