Willow Park School has Safeguarding and Child Protection procedures, policy documents and a training programme that incorporates Government and Policy Legislation. Staff are given a copy of the Child Protection Procedures and receive annual training from trained staff.
Parents/carers, social workers, placing authorities and other significant people are offered a copy of the Child Protection Policy. This can be found in the policy section of our website.
Willow Park School provides policy guidance, which sets out clear guidelines and expectations in the school with regard to appropriate relationships between all staff and the children. At Willow Park School, we provide a very caring and professional setting in which the children will be given full emotional support without it being detrimental to their safety and well-being. All staff are aware of their responsibilities for Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people.
Willow Park has a duty of care and therefore a responsibility to pass on any child protection and safeguarding concerns to the relevant children’s social care services.
