At Grove we recognise that some children and young people may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse and that all school staff by virtue of their day-to-day knowledge and contact with children are well placed to identify such abuse and offer support to children in need.
All staff and governors of Grove school are committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding children entrusted to our care. If you have a concern that a child is being harmed, is at risk of harm or you receive a disclosure (intentionally or unintentionally) you must contact the headteacher immediately.
