Safeguarding at Wick CE Primary
At Wick CE Primary, the health, safety and well-being of every child is our paramount concern. Our aim is that children will enjoy their time as pupils in this school in a safe and secure environment where they are protected. We listen carefully to our children and take seriously what they tell us.
Our school has a Child Protection Policy that follows the Local Authority's guidelines for any action which has to be taken to safeguard or promote the welfare of our children. We have legal duty to work with other agencies to protect children from harm and respond to abuse.
