Safeguarding

Our pastoral system is dedicated to all pupils being successful and safe

Woolwich Poly recognises its moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of its pupils.

We will endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.
