Working Together To Safeguard Children
We know that some children attending Salterhebble may be vulnerable and, as adults, we have a moral duty to protect them, to ensure their needs are met and to support them and their family. As adults working with children, we have a statutory duty to ensure their safety and the healthy development of all children in our care. As a school community, we are strongly committed to working in close partnership with parents/carers and other agencies. It is everyone's responsibility to 'take special care' to safeguard and promote the welfare of our children.
