Overview

At Lisburne School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. We strongly believe that all children have the right to feel safe and to be protected from physical, sexual or emotional abuse and neglect.

Schools have an important part to play in protecting children and like every school staff have a duty to note down injuries and other concerns and contact Social Services Division immediately in certain situations. If this happens, it is likely a Social Worker and not the school will contact the parents. This is part of the LEA’s child protection procedure and is not a matter for the discretion of individual Headteachers or members of staff. The same procedures are obligatory for all maintained schools.

Please refer to our Safeguarding Policy for further information which is available on our policy page
