CHILD PROTECTION

Given on-going public concern on the subject of child abuse, and recent changes in the law, schools are now required to report if they think any child may have come to harm as a consequence of possible abuse.A member of staff in each school has been appointed to be responsible for Child Protection matters and special training has been given to these people.  Should you wish further advice about Child Protection and the safety of children, please feel free to contact the school.The school has good liaison contact with the School Medical Officers, Social Workers, and the Police, any or all of whom may become involved if abuse is suspected.Please see the following link https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/sites/default/files/child_protection_guidelines_and_procedures_2010_sh_updated_250214.pdf for more information on child protection.
