At WGS we are committed to our duty to safeguard and promote the welfare and wellbeing of children, young people in our care, those who work in the school and visitors. Through our work we aim to ensure a safe learning and working environment for students, staff, parents and visitors alike. We take our responsibilities in relation to safeguarding and child protection very seriously. Where there are safeguarding and security concerns, the staff communicate this to the school’s designated security team immediately.
At WGS we go the extra mile to welcome parents, families and visitors to our school at all possible times. However, access to the school site is closely monitored, with a 24 hour security presence and over 20 cameras streaming at all times. Our signing in system and ID cards ensure that we can easily identify adults on site. All adults who work with our students, including visiting professionals, are appropriately checked and / or supervised. This also supports our emergency evacuation processes which are in place.
