Safeguarding

Safeguarding at Oakfield

 

Oakfield Primary School takes seriously its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in its care.  “The welfare of the child is paramount” (the Children Act 1989).

 

Section 175 of the Education Act 2002 (Section 157 for Independent schools) places a statutory responsibility on the governing body to have policies and procedures in place that safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are pupils of the school.

 

Our first and foremost priority is to keep your child safe and healthy; there are safeguarding notices around our school to remind staff and visitors of our policies and practices with the key message that: ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, every day’.  Under the Ofsted framework safeguarding is a key indicator of what constitutes a good school.
