Safeguarding

Prior’s Mill CE Primary is committed to providing the very highest standards of protection and safety to the children entrusted to our care. All staff receive annual safeguarding training in relation to Keeping Children Safe in Education. Alongside this, staff are regularly and appropriately trained in first aid, digital safety, specific child protection issues and health and safety.

Keeping Children Safe in Education is statutory guidance that schools and colleges in England must have regard to when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. It is regularly reviewed and updated. You can access the document here:
