St Andrew's CE First School


St Andrew's takes the safeguarding of its pupils extremely seriously.

Our staff undergo regular training in this area. 

Safer recruitment 

Safer recruitment is a set of practices to help make sure our staff and volunteers are suitable to work with children and young people. It is a vital part of creating a safe and positive environment and making a commitment to keep children safe from harm.

We always ensure these practices are followed when we have any new staff or volunteers.

Single Central Register

Our designated Safeguarding Governor conducts regular checks of the Single Central Register and meets with the school Safeguarding Leads. Safeguarding is reviewed every term in the Health & Safety, Sites& Buildings and Safeguarding Committee and a report given in the summer term to the Full Governing Body.

We abide by the Keeping Children Safe in Education Guidance which is read by all staff and Governors

HAF is a Department for Education (DfE) funded programme aimed at enabling children and young people in receipt of benefits-related free school meals (FSM) to attend school holiday activities and experiences during Easter, summer and Christmas.
