In line with Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2023 we do everything possible to prevent people who pose a risk of harm from working with children in our school. We adhere to Safer Recruitment and Selection guidelines. We incorporate measures into our recruitment and selection procedures that help to deter, reject or identify people who may abuse children or who are otherwise unsuited to work with them. All staff play a part in keeping children safe whilst working in or visiting the school site.
At Shaftesbury High School, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children as our highest priority. We expect everyone to adhere to the HM Government - Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 guidance.
