We all have a statutory duty to Safeguard and promote the welfare of children. At Forge Valley we aim to ensure that:

  • Appropriate action is taken in a timely manner to safeguard and promote children's welfare
  • All staff are aware of their statutory responsibilities with respect to safeguarding
  • Staff are properly trained in recognising and reporting safeguarding issues.

School work with professionals to help families get support that they require. School can refer to a Multi Agency Support Team (MAST) who can work with us to identify what support is required. On some occasions school will need to work with the family to do a Family Common Assessment Framework (FCAF) which gathers information about the whole family.

We support Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership and have adopted the the policies and procedures.
