The welfare and safety of children who attend our school is our first and paramount concern.
We will promote the health, well-being and safety of our pupils in all we do. Your children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school. The school understands the responsibilities set out under various education acts to work together in partnership with other agencies to help children to grow up in a healthy and safe environment.
All members of staff have a part to play in ensuring that your children are safe and that their well-being is supported. The overall responsibility for safeguarding issues is the Head Teacher although this may be delegated to the Child Protection Lead on a day to day basis.
The Child Protection Lead will have responsibility for maintaining accurate records of all incidents and liaising with external agencies. They will also oversee the training programme for all staff and ensure that staff are kept up to date with all the relevant safeguarding policy matters.
The Head Teacher will retain responsibility for all matters of staff recruitment and related safeguarding issues such as the appropriate CRB checks and reference documentation is obtained when employing staff.
The Designated Safeguarding Leads are Rukhsana Ahmed (Head Teacher), Mrs Parker-Stone (Head of School) and Diane Stephenson (Family Support Worker).
