Mordiford CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children. To achieve our commitment, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.

We are committed to inspiring, challenging and safeguarding our pupils, enabling them to become:

Successful learners, who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.

Confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.

Responsible citizens who will make a positive contribution, both socially and economically, to society.

All adults who work in school have a responsibility to read and understand all safeguarding policies.


All adults are also expected to read the DfE booklet: Keeping Children Safe In Education

Our Safeguarding Policy can be found in the policy section of the website.

Early Help

Early help, also known as early intervention, is about providing the right support to children and families, at the right time, to meet a family’s needs and achieve positive change that lasts.

Early help can be provided at any stage of a child or young person’s life, from birth through to the teenage years or up to 25 years old for those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Early help services can be delivered to children, parents or the whole family, with the main focus being to improve outcomes for children as soon as problems start to emerge or to help prevent situations from escalating or further problems arising.

If you are experiencing any difficulties within your family, you can contact your GP, Health Visitor, nursery, school or college for information, advice and support. You may also want to take a look at the additional support available within Herefordshire.
