‘The safety of children and young people is paramount. Brownedge St Mary’s is fully committed to the rigorous implementation of safeguarding procedures and arrangements. We expect all staff, supply teachers and volunteers to share this commitment.’

Parents should know that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where the school has a safeguarding concern about a child staff will follow the Local Authority Safeguarding / Child Protection Procedures.

  • protecting children from harm;
  • preventing impairment of children's health or development;
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
