Safeguarding Policy and Risk Assessments


This webpage contains key information about Creekside's approach to safeguarding and risk assessments for our core activities.

These documents are available for download and are reviewed regularly.



The Creekside Education Trust believe that children and adults at risk should never experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children and adults at risk, to keep them safe and to practise in a way that protects them.

We recognise that the welfare of children and adults at risk is paramount in all the work we do and in all the decisions we take. Our Safeguarding Policy outlines our commitment to safeguarding everyone’s wellbeing on our site and participating in our wide range of activities. 

Safeguarding Policy

We are committed to reviewing our policy and good practice annually.
