Child Protection

The safety and well-being of the children in our care is always the driving force behind our decision making and the effectiveness of the school safeguarding procedures are outstanding. Our  yearly audit of our safeguarding procedures is also praised by the Local authority.

All staff and governors have had specific training and are proficient in all aspects of Child Protection.  We are committed to ensuring that we protect each and every one of our children from abuse of any kind.

We are legally bound to refer Child Protection concerns to Social Care. We may inform you of our concerns before we speak to Social Care,however, there are occasions when a referral to Social Care has to be made without informing you beforehand that we are doing this.

The designated Child Protection Staff are:

Mrs  Claire Westall

Miss Gail Palmer

Mrs Stephanie Lock

Mrs  Danielle Kellond

If you have any concerns about a child please talk to one of our

Designated Safeguarding Leads or you can phone the Multi Agency Referral Unit on 0300 123 1116

Never keep a concern about a child’s safety to yourself.
