Our commitment to Safeguarding

Warwick Bridge School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and well-being of its pupils, engages with young people and staff in Policy and practice developments, proactively encourages feedback and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Safeguarding at Warwick Bridge School is first and foremost at the centre of our school and our local community. We pay due diligence to ensuring all pupils are safe and secure within our school. We work with families to maintain strong positive links and develop every aspect of a child's life. 

Staff are very vigilant and have professional curiosity towards keeping children safe.  All staff refresh their level 1 training each September. There is then ongoing regular safeguarding reminders, staff meetings or internal training throughout the year. 

We, at Warwick Bridge School, offer your child a safe, happy, nurturing environment, where children's wellbeing and safety are at the forefront.
