What is Safeguarding?

• All the adults around you think that your health, safety and welfare are very important.

• At Marriott Primary School, we respect all children and adults, and help to protect their rights and keep them safe.

How does Marriott Primary School work to keep you safe?

• We provide a safe environment for you to learn.

• Staff at our school know how to keep you and your friends safe, at home as well as school.

• It is important for you to know where to get help if you are worried or unhappy about something.

• We teach you how to keep you, and others, safe. And to recognise risks in different situations. Our lessons include, healthy eating, e-safety, road safety and assemblies.

Need to Talk?

  • You can speak to any adult in school, they will always listen to you.

  • You can place a note in a Worry Box in class & an adult will arrange to meet with you.
