Both John Watson School and Wheatley Nursery School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

John Watson School recognises the responsibility it has under Section 175 of the Education Act 2002 to have arrangements in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

John Watson School adopts the definition of safeguarding using the Children’s Act 2004 and DfE guidance document ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018

Safeguarding is the duty of all members of staff. We recognise that through their day-to-day contact with pupils and direct work with families,staff at the school have a crucial role to play in noticing indicators of possible abuse or neglect and referring them to the appropriate agency.

Safeguarding awareness will be addressed through the curriculum as appropriate to ensure all pupils understand what is meant by safeguarding and how they can be safer.
