Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility
The Good Shepherd Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that all our recruitment and employment practices reflect this commitment.
The safety and wellbeing of every child in the care of Farnborough Grange Nursery and Infant School is our absolute priority. We expect all of our staff, pupils, parents, local committee members, Trustee Directors, visitors, contractors and third party professionals to share this view. The safeguarding and protection of children is everyone’s responsibility.
