At Crossley Hall we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of students. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued.
We are aware of an alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow our procedures to ensure that all children are effectively supported and safeguarded.
The information on this page will summarise how we meet our safeguarding and child-protection responsibilities, in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education (2020).
Our Child Protection and Safeguarding policies and practises apply to all staff, governors and volunteers who work in our school.
