All children have a right to be protected from harm, abuse and neglect. The vision of the Renfrewshire Child Protection Committee is that “It’s everyone’s job to make sure that children in Renfrewshire are safe.”
Renfrewshire Council has a child protection policy and guidelines are in place to make sure that all council staff are alert to the welfare of children they come into contact with. Our staff work closely with other agencies to protect children and keep them safe. All school staff receive training each year and must report any concerns they have about the welfare of children. In every situation, the welfare of the child overrides other considerations.
