Middleton Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility. Middleton is committed to ensuring that all children and young people are safe and feel safe and that children, parents/carers and staff are able to talk about any safeguarding concerns and feel assured that they will be listened to. All staff and volunteers are aware of and implement safeguarding procedures and guidance, including what to do if they suspect a child or young person may be experiencing, or be at risk of, harm.

At Middleton Primary School the welfare of our pupils is paramount.

Under the Children Act 1989 the School has a duty to keep all children safe and to protect them from harm.

Any issue relating to child protection should be addressed to 'FAO Safeguarding Lead, Steve Hughes' at email
