Health, Safety and Pastoral Care
Wootton-By-Woodstock School is committed to safeguarding children and young people. All post holders in regulated activity are subject to appropriate vetting procedures and a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced check.
Wootton-By-Woodstock School is a school in which everyone is nurtured. Health, Safety and Well-being is the school’s first priority. Safe and healthy individuals are happy individuals who are able to apply themselves to their work and achieve well.
This school has repeatedly been awarded an Outstanding judgement with regard to Health and Safety compliance during Local Authority audits (conducted on behalf of the ODST). The school follows all Government and ODST expectations with regard to safeguarding and child protection procedures, working closely with other agencies as necessary. Some of our procedures may seem a little ‘fussy’ but we do operate on the principles of best practice because we wish to keep your children as safe as possible.
