Park House School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  

We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support pupils, families, and staff at school.  

We ensure that all staff, volunteers, members of the Development Group and Proprietors receive appropriate training, guidance, and support to undertake the effective safeguarding of pupils.  

Park House School believes that our pupil's welfare is of paramount importance, and that all pupils have the right to be protected from abuse, regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious belief, or sexual identity. All allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to quickly, in accordance with our Safeguarding Policy. 

We recognise that there are different forms of abuse, including emotional, sexual, physical harm and neglect. Every adult within our school is trained to know what actions to take in the event of a safeguarding concern or disclosure, where to seek further information, help and guidance.
