Tonbridge School aims to provide an environment in which there are effective procedures for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all boys in our care. The School starts from the premise that the welfare of the child is paramount.

We aim to establish an ethos where boys feel secure, know that there are adults to whom they can talk in times of difficulty and where positive steps are taken to build self-esteem and confidence. We also recognise the importance of working with other agencies such as social care, the police, health services, other agencies and Safeguarding Partners to ensure the welfare of children under our protection.


Our Safeguarding Policy (including the Child Protection Policy) can be found here.
