Safeguarding Policies

Safeguarding children is taken extremely seriously at Telford Infant School. Any adult working in school, including volunteers, is required to undertake relevant police checks prior to starting work. Invariably this involves a DBS check. We have clear procedures to make sure that children are safe and secure at all times.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy which can be accessed by clicking on this link:
