Child Protection & Safeguarding at Glebe School

We believe that all pupils are entitled to receive an education appropriate to their needs, which promotes high standards, so that pupils are able to achieve their best, become confident individuals, make a successful transition into adulthood, into further education, training or employment and lead fulfilling lives.
We take seriously our moral and statutory responsibility for safeguarding, protecting, and promoting the welfare of all pupils and our community, by ensuring that the basic needs for all pupils are met.
