Worsthorne Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies if there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns are raised with parents/carers first unless we feel that such a move may be contrary to the child’s welfare.
At Worsthorne Primary School we take our role in safeguarding very seriously as we believe that all children have a right to feel and be safe.
