Safeguarding Children

We aim to keep all children safe at Nancledra School. We do this by;

  • creating and maintaining a safe learning environment for children and young people
  • identifying where there are child welfare concerns and taking action to address them, in partnership with other organisations where appropriate

Our staff receive regular and up to date training in order to understand risks and prevent harm to children.



Our Safeguarding Policy is available to download below alongside further national advisory and guidance documents.
