At Christopher Reeves Primary School, we take our responsibilities to safeguard children very seriously. We are committed to ensuring that all our children and young people feel safe; that children, parents/carers and staff are able to talk about safeguarding concerns and feel assured that they will be listened to; and that all staff are aware of, and implement safeguarding procedures and guidance including what to do if they suspect a child or young person may be experiencing, or be at risk of harm. The welfare of our pupils is paramount.
