In Ballyclare Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. All staff in school share this commitment and are adequately trained to have the knowledge and skills required to promote safeguarding and respond to pastoral issues if they arise. It is our aim to establish a safe and nurturing environment free from harm, discrimination or bullying where children can learn and develop happily.

Our curriculum is designed to ensure pupils recognise how to keep themselves safe and how to seek support if they have any concerns. Children know that they can approach any adult in school if they are worried and that they will receive a consistent, supportive response. 

We have a designated Pastoral Care/Safeguarding Team in school who review our policies and practices to ensure they are up to date, robust and suitable to the needs and ethos of our school. This team also works closely with external agencies such as the Educational Welfare Service, Social Services and the PSNI to develop a multi-agency approach to safeguarding the children in our care.
