Midlothian Council has issued Child Protection Procedures and Guidance which all staff must follow to promote the welfare of children and to protect them from harm. These procedures and guidance follow the principle that it is everybody’s job to make sure that children are protected from abuse.
All staff, because they are in regular and frequent contact with children, are required to report any concerns. Staff will treat the matter sensitively, and information will only be passed onto those who need to know in order to protect and support the child.
Any parent/carer wishing to discuss child protection and the safety of children is asked to contact Mrs Diane Burgess, Depute Head Teacher, who is our Child Protection Coordinator within the school.
