Nansen Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all children, and expects our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.




Safeguarding children means keeping them safe from neglect and abuse. Anyone who comes into contact with children and families has a responsibility to safeguard and promote their welfare. This means:


    ● Protecting children from maltreatment;

    ● Preventing impairment of children’s health or development;

    ● Ensuring children are growing in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care

    ● Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances


Are you a Parent or Guardian?  Protecting children is your responsibility too.
