Safeguarding arrangements at St. Giles are underpinned by three key principles:


1. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility: all staff, governors and volunteers play their full part in keeping our children safe.


All of our staff, governors, students and volunteers are well trained and receive a thorough induction. 


2. St. Giles operates a child-centred approach: a clear understanding of the needs, wishes, views and voices of children.


We ask our children, and parents, about safeguarding and use the responses to further shape our provision.


3. All staff, governors and volunteers have a clear understanding regarding abuse and neglect in all forms; including how to identify, respond and report. This also includes knowledge in the process for allegations against professionals.  

Governors closely oversee safeguarding practices at St. Giles and monitor the development following the completion of the annual S175 Safeguarding audit. A safeguarding update is provided to our governors on a half termly basis.
