Safeguarding

The Crossley Heath School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse and 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. The diagram below indicates what we consider to be essential to our safeguarding work.
