Keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility


Our school has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are our pupils.  This means that we have Safeguarding and Child Protection policies and procedures in place.  All staff, including our volunteers and supply staff, must ensure that they are aware of our procedures.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child’s best interests or a child is at significant risk or in immediate danger.


Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Mrs C Jones


In her absence, the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mr M Briant and Mrs D Gaywood.
