Keeping Our Children Safe

Keeping our children safe is our highest priority

This page is all about safeguarding our children - keeping them safe in every way within our community, and helping them to learn about how they can keep themselves safe. We have a wide range of measures in place to ensure the safety of our pupils.

Safeguarding Statement

Northgate Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.

We follow procedures set out by Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children Board and take account of guidance issued by the Department for Children, Schools and Families. We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.  

All our staff have had appropriate child protection training, which is updated annually with regular updates, and our Child Protection Policy is available on our policies page. It is the Governing Body’s duty to ensure the policy is reviewed annually.
