Our school feels it is of the utmost importance to have good systems for protecting children and safeguarding their welfare, throughout all the activities which the school undertakes. This means that staff must be alert to possible concerns about every pupil, and report these in a proper fashion. All staff employed at Chard School have enhanced CRB disclosures. The school has a Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy, which can be viewed on the website under ‘Policies’, or by request from the Head at any time.
