Safeguarding

Safeguarding

When the government published “Every Child Matters” it raised 5 key issues that were deemed essential in the complete development of each and every child, in that we have a duty to ensure that each child:

  • Stays safe
  • Is healthy
  • Is able to enjoy and achieve
  • Is able to achieve economic well-being
  • Makes a positive contribution

At Biggin Hill the health and safety of all children is of paramount importance. Parents send their children to school each day with the expectation that school provides a secure environment in which their children can flourish. We therefore have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality. We have very clear policies regarding Child Protection and Safeguarding Children which can be accessed via the links below, additionally all staff have completed level 1 safeguarding training which is renewed every three years.
