 Safeguarding at Martongate

School staff play an essential role in protecting children from abuse.

They have regular contact with children and young people so are in a strong position to identify signs of abuse and neglect.

Schools should:

  • create safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices
  • ensure that adults who work in the school, including volunteers, don't pose a risk to children
  • make sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice
  • teach children and young people about staying safe
  • maintain an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem.
