Safeguarding at Snowflake School

At Snowflake School we are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. 

We provide a safe, secure, and supportive environment for all members of our school community but most especially our pupils. Our pupils may not always possess the communication skills that enable them to discuss or disclose incidents that upset or frighten them. It is of the utmost importance therefore that we continue to provide a sensitive, proactive environment in which pupils’ parents and staff members are secure and confident in the agreed procedures that put pupils’ safety first.  

We aim to embed child protection and safeguarding throughout the curriculum, by teaching pupils topics such as online safety, safety in the community and keeping ourselves safe.

Snowflake School Safeguarding Team

At Snowflake School we have policies and procedures in place to ensure our pupils feel supported and everyone, whatever their role is aware of the importance of Safeguarding.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all practitioners should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

Please see related policy for our safeguarding procedures on how to report a concern.
