At Focus School Wilton Campus, safeguarding children is central to the school ethos which states that ” The truth and authority of the Holy Bible and strong family values underpin the commitment of the School to provide quality in every facet of education – curriculum, teachers, facilities, management and discipline – in a safe and caring environment.”

Safeguarding children is twofold: the protection of specific children who are at risk of deliberate harm, commonly known as Child Protection; and the general safety of children at the school. This includes anti-bullying, peer on peer abuse, e-safety and pupils’ general safety at school, on school transport and on educational visits.

The Senior Management Team and the Designated Person for Safeguarding take a very proactive approach towards Safeguarding.

The Designated Person, Mrs Fox, conducts the annual audit reporting back to Wiltshire Council and liaises directly with the Wiltshire MASH (Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub).

Any Safeguarding concerns or issues should be raised immediately with the Designated Person, Mrs Fox, whose name and contact details are clearly displayed around school and in the policy document.

The School’s Safeguarding policy can be found here.

The school carefully vets all applicants to ensure their suitability to work with children.
