Wilton Primary Academy’s whole-school Child Protection Policy aims to provide clear direction to staff and others about expected codes of behaviour in dealing with child welfare concerns. The policy also aims to
make explicit the school’s commitment to the development of good practice and sound procedures to keep children safe in our school.
This policy recognises that abuse can occur in all communities and contexts
and that all staff have a responsibility and the opportunity to support children, in sharing concerns and worries in school to feel safe. The whole school culture of vigilance in Wilton Primary creates a safe space where children are supported, listened to and valued in what they choose to share and that ALL staff act immediately with the necessary level of intervention to create the most effective outcome for every individual child.
