Child Protection Policy

Newham Bridge Primary School will follow the principles and procedures laid down by the Area Child Protection Committee of which the Education Authority is a constituent member. Child Protection procedures exist to aid the protection of any child suffering abuse. There are four main areas of abuse:

  • Neglect (including failure to thrive)
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse (may also include bullying and harassment)

All staff have an important role in the recognition and referral of child protection concerns. Some personnel have a specific responsibility or a specialist role.
