Maidenhall Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All staff and governors must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. At Maidenhall we record all safeguarding, bullying, racist and child on child abuse on CPOMs. This forms a safe online digital store for all records for pupils disclosures and any events which a member of staff feels needs to be logged.
Some key government documents relating to safeguarding include:
