Safeguarding Opening Statement

At South Molton United Primary School we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support and protection. We work closely with our partner agencies to safeguard pupils.

On this page you will find links to our safeguarding policies and useful links for online safety.
