At Darrington CE Primary School we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will act quickly and follow our procedures to ensure children receive effective support, protection and justice. 


"Safeguarding arrangements fully meet statutory requirements. Safeguarding and child-care training are up-to-date. Pupils are given extensive guidance to help them keep safe. For example guidance for the safe use of the internet is well known to pupils... 

The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding.  All staff are trained in safeguarding procedures and safe recruitment policies are followed meticulously.  Safety policies are clear and well known by staff."
