         • We recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.

 

         • We recognise that no other concern or responsibility, however genuine, outweighs the need to prioritise the welfare of children or of    

           adults at risk of abuse, at all times.

 

         • We welcome, encourage and urge anyone who is concerned about any aspect of our safeguarding practice or provision to raise

           those concerns, as outlined below.

 

         • We welcome, encourage and urge anyone who is concerned about any safety and welfare of a child or adult to report those

           concerns.

 

         • We undertake to treat all such concerns seriously.

 

         • We guarantee that no one who raises any concern in good faith, even if those concerns are ultimately found to be unfounded, will

           face any adverse consequences whatsoever.
