At Northfield House, we believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse. Our staff are vigilant in looking for signs of safeguarding issues which affect our pupils and their families, and are confident in applying our safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems. A copy of our safeguarding policy within school is available below:

RMET Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy 2017

Through regular training, all staff are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to safeguard pupils from all forms of abuse. Please find a copy of the code of conduct that is operated staff within the whole Trust here:

Code of Conduct

Sometimes, we may need to share information and work in partnership with other professionals when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversations, and report to one of the DSLs as soon as possible.

As well as our E-Safety guidance for parents and carers, below are some links to some useful websites if you need further information regarding safeguarding:
