 Safeguarding children visitor card


Widney Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children - we expect all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.  We work closely with the Birmingham and Solihull Safeguarding Boards and actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection and Safeguarding policies which can be viewed below:
