Safeguarding Statement

At Ranby, our ethos is that the effective safeguarding of children can only be achieved by putting children at the centre of a system where we listen and hear what they say. Every individual within our school will play their part, including working with professionals from other agencies, to meet the needs of our most vulnerable children and keep them safe. Children will be taught about safeguarding issues in a way that is age appropriate.

 Our school aims to provide a safe environment and vigilant culture where children can learn and be safeguarded. If there are safeguarding concerns we will respond with appropriate action in a timely manner for those children who may need help or be suffering, or likely to suffer, significant harm.

 If you have any concerns about the safety and wellbeing of any child/person, please contact the Designated Safeguarding team, who are shown below.
