At Kepier we are very clear, the welfare of our learners is paramount and we will offer early and additional help to prevent escalation.
Parents should be aware that Kepier will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of our learners.
Where we are concerned a learner may be at risk of significant harm, ill-treatment, neglect of other forms of abuse, we have no alternative but to follow Sunderland Safeguarding Children’s Board Procedures which can be found here.
A copy of our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy can be found here.
