Widford Lodge Preparatory School is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.  We believe every pupil should be able to participate in all school activities in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from harm.

This is the responsibility of every adult employed by, or invited to deliver services at, Widford Lodge Preparatory School.  We recognise our responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our pupils by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect and bullying.

Widford Lodge Preparatory School ensure that good practice is maintained in terms of all staff recruitment, vetting, induction and training.  A programme of evaluation and review is in place with respect to safeguarding policies, practices and procedures.
