Sandgate School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Prior to appointment, all staff have Enhanced DBS and pre-employment checks, and undergo confirmation of appropriate qualifications and professional references.

Sandgate School recognises that every member of staff, governor and volunteer is responsible for ensuring that safeguarding at Sandgate School is integral to the daily life of every one of our children.

Sandgate School treats all students and children as individuals regardless of age, background, need or academic level and strives to ensure they are safe and protected whilst they learn to take risks as they develop and grow.
