Safeguarding at Peak School

Safeguarding at Peak School is taken very seriously.

Keeping pupils safe is the primary responsibility that runs through every element of the schools work and staff are empowered to report any concern to a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

We follow strict safer recruitment procedures and all staff have enhanced DBS checks to ensure that they are suitable to work with vulnerable children and young adults.  All staff receive regular  training and one of our governors is nominated lead for safeguarding.  All staff and visitors must wear an ID badge at all times.  Our school building is secure and all visitors must sign in and show proof of identity.

The school works closely with other agencies to ensure that pupils’ and families’ needs are met.
