Empowering Everyone to Achieve

Safeguarding

At Sir William Ramsay School, we are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, ensuring that the highest priority is given to following guidance and regulations to safeguard all our students.

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 health or development.
  • Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.
  • Taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

Information is shared on a ‘need to know’ basis when in the best interests of a child, this may be with staff internal to the school and/or external agencies as a level deemed necessary and appropriate. If it is felt a child is at significant risk of harm then parents/ careers may not be informed immediately.
