Safeguarding of children

Safeguarding and Child Protection 2020

The safety and well-being of all of our children is our priority. We try to be approachable and understanding with parents, but will always report to Social Services if we have evidence that any child at Marlborough is at risk of any kind of abuse.

All staff members receive statutory child protection training.
All adults or volunteers who have direct access to children or who are required to work with a child or with a small group of children have a DBS check.

If parents wish to accompany children on school trips, although we do not request that they have had a DBS check we do encourage it, and depending on the trip we may decide to take parents with a DBS check rather than those who do not have one.
