All staff at Chipping Sodbury School play a significant part in safeguarding children and young people.  To this end, the school expects all staff and volunteers to share the commitment to keeping children and young people safe.  All postholders and regular volunteers are subject to employment and an enhanced check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Here are some quotes taken from our most recent Ofsted report, June 2018.

"Pupils are safe in the school and staff take good care of their physical and emotional wellbeing."

"There is a culture where risks are assessed so that pupils are safe and secure. All the necessary checks on staff are completed thoroughly. The designated safeguarding leads are vigilant in their oversight of any child protection issues."

"Records of any safeguarding issues are of high quality and detailed."

All policies relating to safeguarding can be found here.
