Safeguarding

Our Staff all have a statutory duty to “safeguard and promote the welfare of children”.

If staff have any concerns about the health and safety of a child or feel that something may be troubling them, they share this information with an appropriate member of staff straight away.

Some issues e.g. a child’s appearance, hygiene, general behaviour, can be shared with any teacher or member of support staff in this setting. This may be reporting small matters but we would rather they tell us things which turn out to be small than miss a worrying situation.

If the matter is very serious and may be related to a child protection concern, where the child has been harmed or is at risk of harm e.g. physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect, staff must talk to one of the people below immediately.

If the designated staff member (below) is unable to be contacted immediately the school office staff will notify them that a confidential and urgent matter needs to be dealt with as a priority.

Here is an overview of how we work with parents to Safeguard the children.
