Trenode Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The Health and Safety of all children is paramount.

Parents and carers expect the school to provide a safe, secure and caring environment in which children can flourish.

To meet this expectation, the school implements a wide range of measures and policies, including the School’s Safeguarding and Child Protection policy. Details of these can be found in the Key Documents section on the school website.
