Safeguarding

We all have a statutory duty to “promote and safeguard the welfare or children” (section 175 Education Act 2002)

If you have any concerns about the health and safety of any child or young person in this school, or feel that something may be troubling them, you must share this information with an appropriate member of staff straight away.

Any allegations or disclosure involving a member of staff, a child’s foster carer or a volunteer at this school MUST be reported directly to the Headteacher without delay. If the allegation involves the Headteacher it must be reported to the chair of Governors, again without delay.

The people you should talk to at school are:

 

The Designated person for Child Protection is:

Mrs Sally Henshall, Headteacher

Telephone Number: 01977 615080

The Deputy Designated person for Child Protection is:

Mrs Alison Buckler, Deputy Headteacher

Telephone Number: 01977 615080

The Governor who oversees Child Protection is Mr J Garrick. He can be contacted via the school office.

Thank you for supporting and safeguarding the children and young people at our school.

 

SO If you have concerns about a child’s safety or well-being you should contact Social Care Direct free on 0345 8503 503. They will deal with your concerns and can offer advice and support on what to do.
