Safeguarding and Child Protection
At Checkendon School, our Governing Body takes seriously its responsibility under Section 11 of the Children Act and duties under Working Together to Safeguard Children 2019 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children; to work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements exist within our setting to identify and support those children who are suffering harm or are likely to suffer harm. We recognise that all our staff and governors have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that the child’s welfare is our paramount concern.
Our school should provide a safe, caring, positive and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child free from discrimination or bullying where children can learn and develop happily.
