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


What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from abuse and maltreatment

  • preventing harm to children’s health or development

  • ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care

  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.


Details of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment can be viewed in our safeguarding policy.





Most children generally enjoy safe and happy childhood experiences within their own family, but unfortunately for some this is not the case. During difficult family times everyone has a responsibility to protect children from future harm. Good child care begins even before a child is born.
