Our Safeguarding Commitment

Our Safeguarding Commitment


Here at William Austin Infant School we firmly believe that safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and that everyone who comes into contact with children and their families/carers has a role to play. We are fully committed to actively promoting a culture of vigilance where children’s welfare, safety and protection are of paramount importance at all times. We ensure that our approach to safeguarding is child-centred and always consider what is in the best interest of the child.


Our school and its staff fully recognise the contribution we make in protecting children from harm as well as supporting and promoting the welfare of all the children who attend it.


Our aims are:

  • to provide a safe and secure environment where children can learn effectively.
  • to ensure appropriate action is taken for protecting children from maltreatment.
  • to prevent impairment of children’s health or development.
  • to ensure that children are able to grow up in circumstances consistent with safe and effective care in order for all children to have the best outcomes in life.


At William Austin Infants, everyone is committed to safeguarding and we all share this value of commitment together.
