Developing Knowledge of Safeguarding

School staff play an essential role in protecting children from abuse.

We have regular contact with children and young people so are in a strong position to identify signs of abuse and neglect.

At Penn Wood, we:

  • create safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices
  • ensure that adults in the school don’t pose a risk to children
  • make sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep up-to-date with policy and practice
  • teach children and young people about staying safe

 

This area of the website contains some of the work that we do at Penn Wood to support our children to keep themselves safe.
