Safeguarding at St. Margaret's

The designated Safeguarding team have a clear and secure framework in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and their families in line with the Early Help ethos.

We maintain a professional attitude of 'it could happen here'  where Safeguarding is concerned. Where there are concerns about the welfare of a pupil, staff members will always act in the best interests of the child.

Our school will continue to maintain an ethos where pupils feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and feel safe.
