Cove School recognises that safeguarding encompasses the duties of child protection and promoting the rights and welfare of children. As such, it is:

  • Everyone’s responsibility to safeguard children
  • Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play
  • Everyone working with children maintains an attitude of ‘it could happen here’.

Cove School is committed to safeguarding children and will remain vigilant in respect to all types of abuse and neglect; and the specific safeguarding issues highlighted in the most recent guidance: Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016.

The school's policy for Safeguarding and Child Protection is available on the website in the policies section. This policy details what the school will do to safeguard its students as well as detailing information about abuse and procedures within school to tackle this.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead at Cove School is Pauline Stavely and deputy leads are Dr. Andrew King, Rob Dangerfield, Emma Rolls and Emma Williams.
