Safeguarding information for Visitors

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.

Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all practitioners should make sure their approach is child-centred.

This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

The Governors and staff of Roding Primary School fully recognise the contribution it makes to safeguarding children.

We recognise that all staff members, including volunteers and visitors have a full and active part to play in protecting our children/young people from harm.


What to do if you are worried about something you see or hear whilst in school
