Cathedral Primary School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. We aim to safeguard and promote the welfare of children by protecting them from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

We are a listening school and endeavour to maintain trusting relationships between staff, children and parents in order that all safeguarding issues can be responded to sensitivity and appropriately to meet needs of our children and families. We ensure that our children know how to keep themselves safe and when and how to ask for help.
