Safeguarding at Grove Park

At Grove Park Primary School we fully recognise our responsibility for safeguarding. We aim to ensure that children are effectively safeguarded from the potential risk of harm and that the safety and well-being of the children is of the highest priority in all aspects of the school’s work. In addition we aim to maintain an ethos whereby staff, pupils, parents and governors feel able to articulate concerns comfortably, safe in the knowledge that effective action will be taken as appropriate.
