Child Protection & Safeguarding

The health, safety and wellbeing of our pupils is of paramount importance to each and every adult who works at Safa British School. Our pupils have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. 

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils is at the core of everything we do at Safa British School. Arrangements for welfare, health and safety are outstanding here at Safa British School and ensure that all pupils, staff and visitors are exceptionally well cared for. We aim to ensure that pupils feel safe and secure and that they are given every opportunity to enjoy being at school. Our safeguarding policy and child-protection procedures are robust and reviewed for effectiveness. They are updated to ensure that UK and local requirements are met. Staff receive their child protection training annually and in line with guidance from ‘Keeping children safe in education’. Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are responsible for coordinating action within the school and liaising with outside agencies/professionals and government entities as appropriate. All staff have a duty to report any suspected or disclosed cases relating to child protection to the Child Protection Team.
