Westfields Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children who have a right to feel safe and secure and cannot learn effectively unless they do so.  To achieve our commitment and prime responsibility, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst all of our staff, governors and volunteers.

We are committed to inspiring, challenging and safeguarding our pupils, enabling them to become:

  • Successful learners, who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.
  • Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution, both socially and economically, to society.

Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policies, Procedures and Safeguarding Guidance applies to all staff, governors and volunteers working in the school.
