Newfield School is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults as its number one priority.
Full copies of Policies and Procedures related to all aspects of Safeguarding, and the Complaints Policy, are available on request from Geoff Fitzpatrick, Head Teacher and Designated Senior Lead for Safeguarding and Child Protection.
Newfield School complies with the general and specific duties of the Equality Act (2010). In accordance with the duty we publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard to the need to;
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination
- Advance equality of opportunity
- Foster good relations
These specific duties have been considered in relation to all our policies and procedures in school. Our objectives will be reported on and published as part of the Governance public documents available for inspection under the Freedom of Information Regulations and Data Protection duties and in the school newsletter to parents.
Our Equality Objectives are set, reviewed and published annually in our School Development Plan.
