The Governors and staff of Deyes High School recognise our responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our pupils. The whole team works hard to ensure that we provide a safe and welcoming environment where our students are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

Deyes High School’s Safeguarding Policy Principles

  • Welfare of the child is of paramount importance.
  • All children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity, have equal rights to protection.
  • All staff have an equal responsibility to act on any suspicion or disclosure that may suggest a child is at risk of harm.
  • Pupils and staff involved in child protection issues will receive appropriate support.
