Child Protection

Midlothian Council has issued Child Protection Procedures and Guidance which all staff must follow to promote the welfare of children and to protect them from harm. These procedures and guidance follow the principle that it is everybody’s job to make sure that children are protected from abuse.

All staff, because they are in regular and frequent contact with children, are required to report any concerns.  Staff will treat the matter sensitively, and information will only be passed onto those who need to know in order to protect and support the child.

Any parent/carer wishing to discuss child protection and the safety of children is asked to contact Mrs Suzanne Yule, Depute Head Teacher and our Child Protection Coordinator within the school.  (please note that during this Covid-19 period and from 18/03/20 Mrs Karen Hughes, will act as our CP Coordinator Monday to Thursday and Mrs Sarah Fleming on Fridays)
