Boston Spa School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and the protection of the child from all forms of abuse.

We take our responsibilities for the protection of our children very seriously.

All children have a right to be safe no matter who they are or whatever their circumstances.

Keeping children safe is a collegiate responsibility owned by everyone at Boston Spa School.

We all accept our responsibility to listen to children even though we may not be comfortable with what we hear.

If we hear about a child or young person who has experienced treatment that we consider worrying or a concern it is our responsibility to act by telling our Lead Child Protection Officer, Mrs Spink, who can be contacted via Reception.
