Safeguarding and Child Protection

 

Our safeguarding lead staff are:

Mrs Ruth Leach, Mrs Karen Green and Mrs Clare Kirkham.

Our safeguarding lead governor is Mrs Linda Shatford. 

All staff, governors and visiting teachers and regular volunteers are trained in safeguarding and child protection procedures. This means that we all have a responsibly to care for and protect the children in our school. There are opportunities for staff to raise any concerns at weekly staff meetings: this will include talking about children who are acting out of character, children who perhaps are easily upset and, for example, discussing health and safety arrangements on school visits. Safeguarding and child protection is also an agenda item at all governors’ meetings. 

As parents, if you have any concerns please talk to your child’s class teacher in the first instance. If you feel your concerns have not been listened to then please speak to one of the above named staff. If talking to school staff members is not appropriate Mrs Linda Shatford, our designated governor for safeguarding and child protection, may be contacted, in confidence, via the school office.  The local authority may also be contacted, please read the procedures within the Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
