Safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.
At Mount Primary School we believe that this school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical, spiritual, emotional and moral development of the individual child; enabling all children to thrive. We recognise the importance of providing an environment within our school that will enable children to feel safe and respected. We recognise the importance of enabling children to talk openly and to feel confident that they will be listened to and that both mental and physical health are relevant to safeguarding and the welfare of children
We recognise that all adults within the school, including permanent, supply staff, temporary staff, volunteers, parents and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm. We will work pro-actively with parents to build a solid understanding of the school’s responsibilities to ensure the welfare of all children, including the need for referrals to other agencies in some situations.
