Child Protection - Duty of Care
Sticklepath Community Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a statutory duty to report concerns raised that might indicate that a child is at risk of harm to the relevant authorities. In some circumstances we may do this without your consent and/or without informing you.
