Child Protection

Looking after our children is very important and it is not just the responsibility of parents/carers but everyone.

SHIP play an essential role in protecting children from abuse. We have regular contact with children and young people so are in a strong position to identify signs of abuse and neglect.

SHIP safeguard children by:

  • creating safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices

  • ensuring that adults who work in the school, including volunteers, don't pose a risk to children

  • making sure staff are trained, know how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice

  • teaching children and young people about staying safe

  • maintaining an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem

Here is a link to a Scottish Government leaflet about Child Protections issues.  It gives you guidance on things to look out for and what to do if you have a child protection concern.

The NSPCC have also produced a great booklet for
