"Safeguarding is everybody's responsibility"
Our School is committed to safeguarding children and promoting children's welfare and expects all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment. Everyone is expected to abide by the School's guidance to work appropriately with young people.
Children have a right to be cared for and protected, protecting them is everyone’s responsibility. Here at Booker Avenue Junior School we have a duty of care to ensure that all users of the school are kept safe from harm. We are committed to provide a secure and supportive environment in which children can develop and grow into mature and responsible people. Safeguarding children is an essential part of our holistic approach to ensure that children are protected from abuse and neglect and that every child reaches their full potential.
The best interests of the children will always be our priority. As such, there are times we will need to record, monitor and share information with other agencies. We will share concerns about our pupils with the child’s parents/carers unless we have reason to believe that such a move would not be in the child’s best interest.

What you can do
Parents and carers play a role in safeguarding children in their community. If you have any concerns, no matter how small, you should report them to someone who you trust will listen. The school is required to have a designated child protection officer for this purpose. Parents and children should speak to the safeguarding officer if they have any concerns about a child or staff member.
If you think a child or young person may be in immediate danger, call 999. Otherwise contact Careline Liverpool on 0151-233-3700.
