At St Cyprian's Primary Academy, we believe that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Every member of staff who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding them. In order to fulfil this responsibility, every member of staff takes a, “Child Centred” approach, considering at all times what is in the best interests of the child. We ensure that all children are safeguarded by actively encouraging members of staff to work together proactively with children and their families so that children are protected from emotional and physical harm. Our school safeguards and promotes the welfare of all children.
