Creating a Safeguarding Culture

Safeguarding children and young people is an absolute priority at Springfield School and The Meadows School. Staff and governors are required to access appropriate safeguarding and child protection training and this is updated regularly. Our schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a Safeguarding Policy, which is reviewed annually alongside statutory guidance. (Please see below, paper copies can be requested via the school office)
