Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We take rigorous steps to ensure that children stay safe and do not come to any harm. We work closely with parents / carers and a range of professional external agencies in order to ensure this.
As a school we have developed a Safeguarding policy to ensure that all of our staff are working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. This policy is available as a PDF below.
If you have any concerns, no matter how small they may seem, about the safety or welfare of any child, please contact the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr Usher or our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads, Mrs Clinton, Headteacher or Mrs Shaw our SENCo.
Other members of our safeguarding team include: Mrs Taylor (our Nursery teacher), Mrs Betney (our Y1 teacher) & Mrs Gordon (our Y2 teacher).
All of our staff receive regular safeguarding training and are available to discuss any concerns parents may have.
Remember, safeguarding children is everyone's concern and responsibility.
