Working Together to Safeguard Children March 2015
At Claremont Community Primary School and Children’s Centre we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, in line with the duty placed on us by section 175 of the Education Act 2002.
Our Safeguarding Policy sets out systems and procedures as outlined by relevant legislation and documentation including, Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2016, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015, Safeguarding Children In Education – Safer Recruitment (2007), What to Do If You Are Worried A Child is Being Abused ( 2006) and the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 (The ‘Prevent Duty’).
We strongly believe that all children have the right to feel safe and to be protected from physical, sexual or emotional abuse and neglect.
