Safeguarding Procedures at APPS:

At Ashford Park we follow the Surrey Child Protection Procedures and the Local Safeguarding Children's Board guidance and have systems in place to share concerns regarding children's welfare. Part of our legal duty to safeguard our children, may also include us needing to consult specifically with and take advice from, the Police or Children's Social Care, should the need arise.

By working closely together as a staff and with our partner agencies, we firmly believe that we will continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our children.

Please take time to read our policies and do not hesitate to contact the school should you have any questions.
