This school believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.
We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We will work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first - unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection is Mrs Fiona Lovecy
The Deputy Designated Staff for child protection are Mrs Sara Wells, Mrs Sarah Green and Julie Goldburn
The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Sue Fowler.
We will review our policy and procedures on an annual basis.
