Being Healthy and Staying Safe

Being Healthy and Staying Safe

Everyone working in or for our school shares an objective to help keep children and young people safe by contributing to:

  • Providing a safe environment for children and young people to learn and develop in our school setting.
  • Identifying children and young people who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and taking appropriate action with the aim of making sure they are kept safe both at home and in our school setting.

Ladywood School is committed to Safeguarding and Promoting the Welfare of all of its pupils. Each pupil's welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at school, their behaviour may be challenging.

We recognise that some children who have experienced abuse may harm others.

We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.

If you have any concerns about your child, or another child at Ladywood, please email us at:
