At the Wakefield Grammar School Foundation we recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children.  Our priority is providing a safe and welcoming environment, where children are respected, valued and feel that they belong. Please see our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy below.

Other valuable resources include How To Report Harmful Content Online, Staying Positive and Well and  The NSPCC helpline.

Our Foundation policies are listed below and can be downloaded for your reference.  School specific policies can be found on the individual school’s website (links to those pages are below).  Hard copies of all of our policies are available for reference in each School Office.
