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.
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.

Miss L. Glandfield – Headteacher

Miss E. Coakley - Deputy Head
Mrs K. Shirmer - SENCO
