Safeguarding Induction/Training

This area provides all new staff and volunteers with a wide range of safeguarding training materials as well as links to statutory documentation. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the named DSL or Deputy DSL.

As you complete the training, please remember that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility at Grangefield. Everyone who comes into contact with the children and families of the Grangefield School community has a role to play. Everyone should make sure their approach is child-centred which means they should consider at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
