Safeguarding

School Statement

The Governing Body takes seriously its responsibility to ensure that the wellbeing of children is safeguarded and promoted and to work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements within our school to identify, assess, and support those children who are suffering harm.

We recognise that all staff and Governors have a full and active part to play (consistent with their roles and responsibilities) in protecting our students from harm, and that the child's welfare is our paramount concern. We believe that our school should provide a safe, caring, positive and stimulating environment that promotes the social, physical, spiritual and moral development of the individual child.

Designated Safeguarding Leads

If you are concerned for a child’s health, welfare or safety in any way you must speak to Sue Harrison (Headteacher), or in her absence, Nicky Parkin (Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion/SENCO), both are Designated Safeguarding Leads, before you leave the school site.

Do not question the student or try to secure evidence. Your responsibility is to report your concern, not to investigate.

If a student tells you something that suggests they are at risk of harm, allow them to tell you as much as they wish and let them know that you must pass the information on to the Designated Safeguarding Lead.

If you become concerned about a student’s immediate safety, notify the nearest member of staff and tell them why you are concerned. You will be asked to write it down.
