Safeguarding Children


Safeguarding is at the heart of all we do at Stannington Infant school. We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing concerns they may have about their own safety or about the well-being of others.
