Are there examples of safeguarding statements on school websites? In this article, we link to examples of the statements that primary, secondary and special schools use to introduce their safeguarding policies and documents.

Examples from primary schools

Community school in West Sussex

Sompting Village Primary School has a safeguarding statement on its website.

It explains the school’s commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and adds:

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our child protection policy, which can be viewed in the policies section of our website.

It says that the school will discuss any concerns about child welfare with parents before contacting agencies, unless it has reason to believe that doing so would threaten the child's wellbeing.

The statement also notes that the school actively supports the government’s Prevent agenda, and lists the school’s child protection officers.
