Did you know it costs Arnold Mill Primary School 6p per text (per child) to send a text message? To keep the cost of text messaging to a minimum we ask that you sign up to the School Gateway app (https://login.schoolgateway.com/0/auth/register) so the school can send parent/carer text messages for free (remember to switch on your notifications).

Safeguarding Information

What is safeguarding?

 

It might be difficult to accept, but every child can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity. 

 

Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.
  • taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome

 

and

 

“the action we take to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm - is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.”
