Every child at Lamberhead Green deserves to be safeguarded and safeguarding children is the responsibility of every adult at Lamberhead Green. We have clear systems and processes in school to ensure all members of our school community understand their duties and responsibilities in safeguarding children.


Our Safeguarding policies and procedures enable us to:

·         Identify children at risk of abuse, neglect or harm.

·         Keep schools secure.

·         Educate children to avoid dangers outside of school- including online dangers

·         Ensure that no member of staff poses a risk to children.

·         Prevent radicalisation.

·         Tackle bullying and peer-on-peer abuse.

·         Prevent self-harm and self-neglect
