Child Protection and Safeguarding at Southport Learning Trust
Southport Learning Trust is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
The Trust aims to provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child, and strive to make sure that every student in the Trust feels secure, well cared for, and able to reach their full potential.
The Trust understands and is committed to the vital contribution that all Trustees, staff, parents and children can make to safeguarding. Every member of staff has a collective recognition of the importance of providing an environment that helps children feel safe and valued, and a culture that encourages children to talk openly, and have the confidence they will be listened to.
Safeguarding is the proactive stance, which aims to protect children from abuse or harm, and Child Protection is the reactive stance taken to support students whom the school suspects may be in need of protection.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, please see links below:
