Essential information and practical guidance
We have many generous volunteer helpers in the school community and often welcome work experience students for a placement at Bathwick St Mary School. This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
It is essential that anyone who works or wishes to work in the school on a voluntary or work experience basis: shares this commitment to safeguarding and the welfare of our children by positively promoting a safeguarding culture; undergoes any necessary safeguarding checks; reads the information sheets on this page and completes the appropriate forms; attends a ‘formal’ Safeguarding and Induction Interview. We know that anyone committed to safeguarding and the welfare of children will understand the necessity of these checks and procedures and continue to exercise vigilance at all times – alerting the Designated Safeguarding Lead should they be concerned in any way.
