Safeguarding at Southwark

Southwark Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff, visitors and members of the school community to share this commitment. We are fully focussed on ensuring that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place. In addition to this, throughout the curriculum children are taught how to stay safe, including online.
