Child Protection

You can find our Child Protection Policy here.
We all have a duty to protect children, whether we are professionals or private individuals. If you think a child is being or is at risk of being abused or neglected, speak to:
  • Social Care Direct by calling 0131 200 2324
  • the Police by calling 101 or in an emergency 999;
  • a member of staff at school;
  • any Health professional.
We place a high priority on the well-being and safety of our pupils. To this end we have in place a personal safety programme to give pupils knowledge and life skills to keep them safe from all form of abuse.  Where we have concerns that a child about the possible abuse of pupils we are required to follow the Edinburgh and the Lothian’s Inter-Agency Child Protection Procedures which set out the specific duties and responsibilities towards the child and their parents/carers.
