Safeguarding and Child Protection at Upton Cross

Safeguarding describes the actions taken to promote the welfare and development of children and protect them from harm, abuse or maltreatment. Child Protection is also a part of safeguarding and refers to the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm. Safeguarding and child protection guidance and legislation applies to all children up to the age of 18.

Staff, Volunteers, Students and Governors at Upton Cross Primary School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. Through our curriculum we teach children to stay safe and happy. We endorse the understanding that any problem or worry that they may have is legitimate, and encourage children to share their concerns with a trusted adult. Robust safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at Upton Cross. This means that all concerns are passed through trained designated members of staff responsible for safeguarding and child protection.
