Child Protection & Safeguarding at Glebe School

At Glebe, we ensure that we provide an environment which is caring, safe, secure, and inclusive, where pupils are happy and are able to achieve excellent outcomes.

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.

We adopt a core safeguarding approach where:

  • Safeguarding is at the forefront of all of our actions, is embedded into our culture and language

  • Glebe Community #thinkstheunthinkable

  • Pupils are taught about safeguarding themselves in and outside of school, including online, through a broad and balanced curriculum.
