Safeguarding children and Child Protection are integral parts of the roles of all adults at the Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale CE Federation. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of all pupils, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and follow our safeguarding procedures.
All Staff and Governors receive annual training in child protection and safeguarding and are aware of the procedure for passing on welfare concerns within the schools.
Parents should be aware that both schools will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of their pupils. In cases where the schools have cause to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or any other form of abuse our staff must follow procedure and inform Children’s Services.
The partnership between home and school is highly valued however, the Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale CE Federation has a duty of care to all staff. Parents should therefore be aware that if, on rare occasions this relationship breaks down and parents become abusive or aggressive the schools will take every step to protect staff.
