Article 36 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states that every child should be protected from any activities that could harm their development and wellbeing.

At Marldon C of E Primary School we are committed to ensuring that all children are safe during their time with us. Our safeguarding covers many aspects including:

  • Recruiting staff and volunteers
  • Allowing visitors into the school
  • Checking attendance and following up any low attendance
  • Ensuring play-times are safe and enjoyable for all pupils
  • Educating our pupils about bullying, on line safety, staying safe in the community, drug and alcohol awareness and health education
  • Training staff and volunteers

Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy can be found on the policies page.
