Safeguarding

Child protection

Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be the subject of ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff and helpers will follow County Child Protection procedures and inform Social Care (formerly Social Services) of their concern.

Recruitment policy

Safer recruitment policies and procedures are followed and all staff are DBS checked.

Every child matters

We fully endorse the principles in “Every Child Matters” which are that every child has the right to:

  • Be Healthy
  • Stay Safe
  • Enjoy and Achieve
  • Make a Positive contribution
  • Achieve economic well being.

Class teachers promote the welfare and share pastoral care of their children along with the Headteacher, other school staff and helpers, as well as outside agencies.

The person with overall responsibility for Child Protection/Safeguarding is the Headteacher - Mrs. A. Wain.
The Deputy Child Protection Officer is Mrs. D Hicklin.
