At Nightingale Primary School we are committed to establishing a safe, nurturing and stimulating learning environment, where the education and welfare of pupils is given the highest priority. The actions we take to prevent harm; to promote wellbeing; to create safe environments; to educate on rights, respect and responsibilities; to respond to specific issues and vulnerabilities all form part of the safeguarding responsibilities of the school.
Safeguarding processes are intended to put in place measures that minimise harm to children. The policies in this section detail those processes, are updated regularly and shared with all staff, governors, volunteers and supply agencies.
