Through their day-to day contact with pupils and direct work with families, our staff have a crucial role to play in noticing indicators of possible child abuse or neglect. All teaching staff and support staff receive regular Child Protection training. If it appears to a member of staff that a child may have been abused or neglected, the school is required to report these concerns to the Wakefield Safeguarding Children Partnership.
