Funtington Primary School is committed to safeguarding from harm and promoting the welfare of children, young people and their families in line with government legislation. This includes the children of adults who use or provide our services. The school expects all staff, governors, volunteers, social workers, agency staff and trainees to share in this commitment, raising concerns when necessary.
We have a child protection policy and procedure in place. These can be viewed on our website or a hardcopy can be provided on request from the school office. Training is ongoing and updated as required.
Sometimes we work in partnership with other agencies where there are concerns about a child’s welfare. These concerns will be discussed with the child’s parents/carers first unless this would affect the child’s safety. Our principles are supported by good procedures, health and safety, financial management, staff supervision and the curriculum.
