Safeguarding at Meadowside

Safeguarding Statement

The Meadowside Welfare Team along with all the staff, volunteers and visitors to school aim to ensure that every child receives the best education possible.  We work hard to create a welcoming atmosphere which develops the social and emotional needs of everyone.  Children in school are nurtured, valued and treated equally.  Worries, concerns and thoughts of children are listened to in an environment of mutual respect. We support our children and their families by assessing issues and working with the family and professionals both inside and outside of school to find solutions.

You can contact any member of the Safeguarding Team or member of staff if you have a concern relating to a child.

Should you ever have urgent concerns for the immediate safety of a child you should contact the police.
