Wisdom for life


This Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

Please contact the trust for our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy.  We also have a Safeguarding Handbook and HR Handbook with extensive information and resources for our schools. 

Each school also has a Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy based on their Local Authorities model policy.  Please contact the relevant school for a copy.
