- to Linden Bridge
Linden Bridge School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers and member of our community to share this commitment.
We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support and protection.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism, and promote British values and children’s rights.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to safeguarding, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Linden Bridge is committed to the fair treatment of all regardless of age, colour, disability, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religious or spiritual beliefs, and responsibility for dependents, sexual orientation, or any other personal characteristic. We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School committed to ensuring that all children's rights are met in accordance to the UN charter.
Linden Bridge are part of Operation Encompass, a joint scheme between Surrey Police and Surrey County Council. The project aims to safeguard and support children and young people who are affected by domestic abuse or who are reported missing. For more information please see http://www.operationencompass.org
