We strongly believe that the safeguarding of children is everyone’s responsibility. Our school has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children in our care. We have a Safeguarding Policy and clear procedures are in place. All staff are aware of our procedures and parents and carers are welcome to read these on request.
In cases where we have reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, all staff follow the local authority Safeguarding Procedures, and will inform the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) of their concerns.
We will always ensure that any safeguarding concerns about our pupils are discussed in the first instance with their parents/carers unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child’s best interests.
Our Designated Safeguarding Officer is Mrs Barbara Earnshaw. Our Deputy Designated Officers are Mrs Clare Carowicz and Mrs Kere Ascot. Our Safeguarding Governors are Ms Judy Baxter and Mrs Phillipa Denley.
