Safeguarding

We are rigorous in our determination to keep children safe.
 
All staff and volunteers are required to undertake an enhanced check from the Disclosure and Barring Service. All staff recruitment follows strict 'safer recruiting' guidance.
 
Child Protection is everyone's responsibility. Our designated staff team work together to keep all Rusper pupils safe. If you have any safeguarding concerns please contact anyone from the team.
