At Lingdale Primary School we know there can be no issue of greater importance to parents and carers, than the safety of their children; safeguarding is high on our agenda. At Lingdale Primary we give high priority to getting our safeguarding procedures right and have a team of staff responsible for keeping children and learners safe and supporting those most vulnerable to harm and neglect.
Safeguarding is an essential part of the fabric of our school and our safeguarding team pays particular attention to the meticulous and systematic implementation of policies and routines.
