The school endorses a statement of principles contained within the first chapter of ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children: a guide to interagency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children’ .Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse e.g. those with Special Educational Needs, those living in adverse circumstances. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at school, their behaviour may be challenging. We recognise that some children who have experienced abuse may harm others. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.
St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare, both physical and emotional, of every child, inside and outside the school premises.
As part of Blackpool Council Local Authority we are members of the Blackpool Safeguarding Children Board, which is our Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB).
