St. George's CE Primary is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Our vision statement says:

Be you

Linked to the Bible verse:

'So God created humankind in his own image'. (Genesis 1:27)

We believe in everyone's personal dignity. For this reason, safeguarding is a priority at St George's. 

All staff, including supply staff, volunteers and governors, must ensure that they are aware of the school’s child protection policy and procedures. Every member of staff must attend training, to which governors will also be invited. Parents and carers are welcome to read our policy, which is available on our website or via the school office.

The best interests of the children will always be our priority. As such, there are times we will need to record, monitor and share information with other agencies. We will share concerns about our pupils with the child’s parents/carers unless we have reason to believe that such a move would not be in the child’s best interest.
