Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy

The intention of this policy is to ensure that protective practices for children, young people (under 18 years of age) and families are implemented by King’s Baptist Grammar School to keep them safe (inclusive of cultural safety) from deliberate or inadvertent risk of harm and provide them with an understanding of such protective practices. This policy provides all King's personnel with an understanding of their responsibilities to keep children and young people safe, while fostering a culture of openness and respect of cultural diversity, recognising all children have a right to be safe from harm, regardless of age, culture, religion, gender, sexuality, identity or disability. It also sets out the responsibilities of all workers across King's Baptist Grammar School.

Our School's Child Safeguarding Officers are:

James Lenigas
Director of Faith and Culture

Vicky Jones
Head of Junior School (3-5)
