Safeguarding and Child Protection

At Middle Barton School we follow:
‘A child centred and coordinated approach to safeguarding.’ DFE 2018.

The Governing Body of Middle Barton Primary School takes its responsibility under section 11 of the Children Act and duties under “working together” to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, very seriously. We work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements exist within our setting to identify, and support those children who are suffering harm or are likely to suffer harm.
