The safety and welfare of the pupils in our care is of paramount importance to the staff at Cramlington Village Primary School. 

All staff, governors and volunteers recognise their moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils and we endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are all alert to the signs of neglect and abuse and follow strict procedures to ensure all children receive effective support, protection and justice.  This also includes knowledge in the process for allegations against professionals.
