         • 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



         • 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.
