Safeguarding at St Michael in the Hamlet



A Safe School

All our staff are committed to maintaining a safe environment and promote the health, safety and wellbeing of all. All staff receive a safeguarding induction when they start working in school and receive regular updates and annual refresher training in safeguarding.
