Safeguarding at Meadow Farm
Meadow Farm School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. As a school, we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against other vulnerability.
The Governing Body has taken account of the guidance from the Department for Education who has called for all public bodies to make explicit their preventative measures to minimise the threat of extremism in the setting.
