COVID-19 Update: Safeguarding children, adults and families means protecting the most vulnerable from abuse and neglect, especially during such trying times. Check out our safeguarding policies on our policies page.
To report any safeguarding concerns please go to:

At Coleridge we support all children by promoting a caring, safe and positive environment, developing self-esteem and positive attitudes to learning. This leaflet will help you understand how we keep your children safe by telling you:

  • How children can be harmed
  • What we must do to keep you child safe from harm
  • What you must do as a parent to help your child be safe and enjoy school.

As this is a vital subject it is imperative that all staff receive regular training over the course of the year. Our main priority is to work alongside parents and carers; however, there may be times when we have to involve other agencies. Everybody has a responsibility to keep all children under the age of 18 safe.

“Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined for the purposes of this guidance as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.“ – KCSIE

Coleridge's Commitment to Safeguarding & Child Protection

At Coleridge Primary School we are committed to safeguarding children and young people and we expect everyone who works in our school to share this commitment.

Adults in our school take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may worry them.

Are you worried about anything?
