At Muschamp Primary School we are fully committed to safeguarding our pupils and staff. We take notice of and adhere to all the national and local policies and guidance in regard to Safeguarding Children and Young People.
Safeguarding is summarised as:
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.

Keeping Children Safe in Education (Key Documents)
These are the key documents about keeping children safe in education. All those that work with children must understand these documents and know what to do if they are worried about a child. Every member of staff at Muschamp has received training and will do everything they can to protect children from harm.
