“Safeguarding procedures are a model of exemplary practice” Ofsted 2016

The welfare of the children is our priority…

We are committed to the highest standard in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care at all time. We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse and that all of the staff are well placed to identify such abuse and offer support to children in need.

We aim to:

  • Create an atmosphere where all our children can feel secure, valued and listened to.
  • Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse.
  • Respond quickly and effectively to cases of suspected abuse.

We will support all children by:

  • Encouraging self-esteem and self-assertiveness, whilst not condoning aggression or bullying.
  • Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within school.

If any member of staff or visitor to the school has a concern that a child is being harmed, or is at risk of harm, to receives a disclosure (either intentionally or unintentionally), they must report to one of the following people:

Safeguarding Lead – Mrs C Gibbins

Safeguarding Governor – Mr D Collinswood

Deputy Safeguarding Lead – Mrs N Heer

Deputy Safeguarding Lead and CIC Teacher – Mrs C Russell

Deputy Safeguarding Lead – Mrs M Dodd

Deputy Safeguarding Lead – Mrs R Merricks
