Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. At Wolviston Primary everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, we ensure our approach is child-centred and we consider, at all times, what is in the best interest of the child. Every member of staff in Wolviston Primary has full understanding of their safeguarding duties and takes part in regular training to ensure robust safeguarding of children in our care.
