Stanley Grove Primary Academy and BFET recognises their moral and statutory responsibilities to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students. At Stanley Grove, 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 agreed procedures to ensure that students receive effective support and protection. We recognise that safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility.
