Safeguarding

We are committed to the safeguarding of all young people in QES at all times. We view this as one of our primary responsibilities.

We believe that:

  • You have a right to be safe and should be protected from all forms of abuse and neglect;
  • That safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility;
  • It is better to help children as early as possible, before issues escalate and become more damaging

Abuse and neglect are never ok and if you are being or have been abused or neglected you must remember – it is not your fault.

You must always tell someone and they will help it to stop.
