At Slade, the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority. As a school we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children and we expect all staff, volunteers and governors to share this commitment. We ensure there are consistent and effective safeguarding procedures in place to support families, children and staff at school.
