At St. Michael's CofE First School, safeguarding is our top priority. We expect all staff, volunteers, parents, carers and the wider school community to share our commitment to keeping our children safe. All staff and volunteers are trained in safeguarding and safety procedures. All visitors to our school are reminded of their safeguarding responsibility and any who do not have recognised, currently valid DBS clearance will be accompanied by a member of staff at all times.
