Safeguarding and Child Protection

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils and we recognise it is the responsibility of all staff and visitors to safeguard children and young people in accordance with Keeping Children Safe in Education (updated Sept. 2021). This ensures that Kippax Greenfield is a secure and safe learning environment for our pupils to grow into independent, confident and successful young people.

Respect is one of our school drivers and we believe children should be treated with respect and dignity. As a result, they feel safe and are listened to within school.
