‘Keeping Children Safe’ at Northwick Manor Primary School is the most important thing we do. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. If we feel a child is at risk of significant harm, it is our duty to act and to inform the relevant people. This might be Social Care, the Police, the School Nurse, NSPCC, Early Help or other partner agencies. If you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of a child please speak to our Safeguarding Team.
