At West Lancashire Community High School we take seriously our responsibilities to protect and safeguard the interests of all children in our care.  Our role, therefore, in protecting children and young people from exploitation and abuse cannot be underestimated.

It is well established that effective child protection work requires sound procedures, good inter-agency co-operation and a workforce, which is competent and confident in recognising and responding to child protection situations.

There are three main elements to our child protection policy:

  • Prevention
  • Protection
  • Support
