Priory Common is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse.


The school has a culture of vigilance to identify, report, record, offer help and support as early as possible if a concern for safety and welfare arises.


We believe that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and as such our school aims to create the safest environment within which every pupil has the opportunity to strive and reach their full potential.  We recognise the importance of ensuring our pupils know how to seek support, feel that they will be listened to and appropriate action taken.  We will do this by working in partnership with other agencies and seek to establish effective working relationships with parents, carers and other colleagues to develop and provide activities and opportunities throughout our curriculum that will help our pupils to develop the skills they need.
