The Governing Body takes seriously its responsibilities under s.175 of the Education Act 2002 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children; and to work together with other agencies to identify, assess and support any child who is suffering harm of whose welfare may be in question.
We will ensure that all adults who have access to children have been checked as to their suitability.

At King's Wood, the health, safety and well-being of every child are our paramount concern. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. Our aim is that children will enjoy their time as pupils at King’s Wood.
We want to work in partnership with you to help your child to achieve their full potential and make a positive contribution.
On rare occasions, our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you. The procedures, which we follow, have been laid down by the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Team, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all. If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to the Headteacher or your child’s class teacher.
If you have concerns for the safety or well being of any child at King's Wood School, please contact one of the safeguarding leads as soon as you can. If the concern is urgent, please contact the police (phone 101 or, in an emergency where the child is imminently at risk of serious harm, phone 999). Alternatively, if not an emergency, you can call Buckinghamshire First Response (Social Services) on: 01296 383962.
