Child Protection

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The following principles form the basis of our Child Protection Policy:

  • It is a child’s right to feel safe at all times, to be heard, listened to and taken seriously;
  • We have a pastoral responsibility towards the children in our care and should take all reasonable steps to ensure their welfare is safeguarded and their safety is preserved;
  • In any incident the child’s welfare must be paramount, this overrides all other considerations; and
  • A proper balance must be struck between protecting children and respecting the rights and needs of parents and families; but where there is conflict the child’s interest must always come first.
