Our Commitment to Safeguarding 

The well-being of children is at the heart of everything that we do. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and expect all our staff, volunteers and visitors to share in this commitment.

  • All staff members have a statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils at all times.
  • All members of staff hold an enhanced Disclosing and Barring Services (DBS) check.
  • All staff receive annual safeguarding training and any updates as and when they are released, or if a new member of staff joins the school. The school’s most recent training took place on Monday 2nd September 2019.

Responsibilities and Immediate Action

If we have a concern about a pupil or receive information that leads us to be concerned that a pupil has been harmed or is at risk of harm or their welfare is being compromised, we are required to act appropriately to ensure action can be taken to protect the pupil concerned.

In all instances concerns are passed on to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The DSL may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies where there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her 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 at Stanford-le-Hope Primary School is:

Miss L. Glandfield – Headteacher

The Deputy Safeguarding Leads are:

Miss E. Coakley  - Deputy Head

Mrs K. Shirmer  - SENCO

Ms J. Leader  - Assistant Head

Mrs J. Nancolas – SENCO Assistant

Mrs J. Peak – Pastoral Support Officer

Nominated Safeguarding Governor
