Safeguarding

It is a requirement that every school has a Safeguarding policy. Milton’s policy follows National and Local guidance and takes into account the All Wales Child Protection Procedures 2008. The aim of the policy is to ensure that Milton Primary has effective and robust measures in place to safeguard your children from the potential risk of harm and that the safety and wellbeing of the children are of the highest priority.

 

Where concerns have been identified or disclosed by a child, the school has a duty to make a referral to formal agencies so these concerns can be investigated. The two main agencies responsible for investigations are Social Services and the Police.
