Layston C of E First School prioritise the welfare of all children.
Safeguarding is what we do ensure the safety and well-being of every child. Children have the right to be cared for and protected, and protecting them is everyone’s responsibility. It is essential to respond if you see something that concerns you. Safeguarding covers everything we do to minimise risk and prevent abuse or mistreatment.
Child protection is what we do when we know that a child is at risk of harm, abuse or mistreatment.
Please see Child Protection policy for more information and key contacts.
