Keeping Children Safe


The governing body and all those who work at Moss Park Junior School put the safeguarding of pupils as their highest priority to ensure that all children are free to learn without worry or fear of harm. We regularly review our practices to ensure we comply with the DfE guidelines ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ and other statutory duties or relevant guidelines and follow the guidance of the Trafford Safeguarding Children Board. Most recently (November 2017) we completed a Section 175 Safeguarding Audit for Trafford and we were assessed as meeting all the standards. We are committed to Trafford’s Operation Encompass, which is a scheme that provides a method of sharing information regarding domestic abuse between Greater Manchester Police, Trafford Council and Schools, and enables the designated safeguarding lead to be provided with information, explaining that a child was present in a household at the time that an incident of domestic abuse was recorded as having taken place.
