At Cherry Tree Primary School, keeping all children safe, is our highest priority.
The Department of Education defines safeguarding as:
‘Protecting children 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 .’
