Safeguarding and Child-Protection

Safeguarding Our Children

Moira P.S. has a dedicated team of adults who work in our school to help ensure that all our pupils are Safeguarded.  Our Safeguarding Team is made up of members of Staff, Governors and the Principal.

 

All staff and Governors believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment which promotes the social, physical and moral development of the individual child. Within this partnership the school will be sensitive and supportive in meeting its safeguarding duties.
