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.
