Policy Information

Child Protection

The concept of pastoral care runs through all the strands of Clifton School.  All members of staff, operating within the Staff Code of Conduct, have a pastoral responsibility towards the children in their care and take all reasonable steps to ensure their welfare is safeguarded and their safety preserved.

We work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to ensure the safety of our pupils is of paramount consideration. This includes: Social Services, PSNI, Speech and Language Therapists, Parents, Occupational Therapists and Health Professionals.
