Safe Guarding Policy
This policy supports the development of procedures and good practice within Mawnan VA Primary School, to ensure that each person and agency can demonstrate that there is an understanding of the duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. It provides evidence of how this will be implemented within its own organisation and within multi-agency working arrangements.
This safeguarding policy:
Shows how the school intends to meet its safeguarding responsibilities
Promotes best practice within the school.
Reflects the national context of safeguarding and of current central Government expectations
Is in line with, and in some cases exceeds, all elements of national Guidance, in order to provide uniformly high standards across the workforce and to place the organisation at the forefront of safeguarding good practice
Provides a generic statement of values and key principles which demonstrates to all the commitment of the school
Broadly describes the activities in which the organisation will be involved to meet its responsibilities
Will be common to all member organisations of the LSCB, therefore providing for common approaches, training and understanding
Sets a standard which the school will require all organisations with which it does relevant business to meet
