Child Protection and Safeguarding
Mr I. Witts, Mrs S. Bone, Miss D. Moore, Mrs P. Rich,
If you have any concerns about the well-being of any child in school, then please do not hesitate to come me in and speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects that all staff and volunteers share this commitment.
Our Culture of Safeguarding
Safeguarding is our whole school shared responsibility and each adult who works in our school or visits our school, shares that responsibility. We understand that safeguarding permeates everything that we do and is breathed through our policies and strength of interactions with our community of families and pupils.
We use our training to inform our practices and understand how behaviours may be signals for signs and symptoms for a range of safeguarding issues. We seek to create safe environments for all our pupils so that they have the confidence to share anything that is worrying or upsetting them. We challenge all inappropriate behaviours and work hard to promote dignity and respect for all pupils and adults in our care using positive language that does not create shame or blame.
We have a designated Child Protection Co-ordinator in school, who is contactable via the school office should you have any concerns that you feel you should share.
For security reasons all adults visiting the school site must first visit the school office to sign in. Any adult not wearing a visitors badge will be challenged by a member of staff.
