Safeguarding at Crowcroft Park
Crowcroft Park Primary School is fully committed to promoting the health, safety and well-being of all children who attend the school. Our school will work closely with other schools, Child Protection Services, Manchester City Council and the Department for Education to protect and promote children’s health and safety.
Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Our school recognises that as school staff are in regular and frequent contact with pupils, they are particularly well-placed to observe signs of abuse or neglect.
Our school is aware of the responsibilities which all staff have with regard to the protection of pupils from abuse and from inappropriate and inadequate care. Therefore, our school is committed in reacting in accordance with Manchester City Council’s agreed procedures in all cases where there is concern.
What is Safeguarding?
Schools have a statutory responsibility to keep children safe from harm. The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) defines safeguarding as:
- Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
- Preventing harm to children’s health or development
- Ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
- Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes
