Child Protection

Inverclyde Council Education Services has Child Protection Guidelines and Procedures which all schools are required to follow. Education Services work very closely with other agencies namely Strathclyde Police, Social Work Services, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the Children’s Reporter to support children.


Common responsibilities of all staff are to protect children from abuse and exploitation, to respond appropriately when abuse is identified, and to ensure whenever possible that all children are able to exercise their right to be raised in a warm, stimulating and safe environment with the support of staff, their families and carers.


All adults who volunteer to work in the school and nursery require to complete a 'Protection of Vulnerable Groups' (PVG) form.

Any parent who wishes to to work in the school , should enquire at Inverclyde Council's Education Department.
