At Muschamp Primary School the safety and welfare of our pupils is of the utmost importance. Because of the day-to-day contact with children, our staff are well placed to observe the outward signs of abuse.
All adults working in the school must protect children from harm and abuse, including Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Radicalisation/Extremism (Prevent Duty) and be aware that any pupil may be at risk.
We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our pupils under the Education Act 2002 and Children Act 1989 and 2004 through identifying any child welfare concerns and taking action to address them in partnership with families and other agencies where appropriate.
