Safeguarding

Safeguarding our students is a priority at Thriftwood. Our policies and practices ensure that our students are monitored effectively and are able to develop in a safe and supportive environment.

At Thriftwood, we follow Essex Guidelines for Child Protection (SET), found at Essex Safeguarding Children Board.

All volunteers and visitors should be aware of our procedures for safeguarding children. Our policies include:

  • Child Protection
  • Anti Bullying
  • Behaviour for Learning incorporating the Use of Reasonable Force
  • Safer Recruitment
  • Equal Opportunities
