Safeguarding Children Statement

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


This means that we have a Child Protection Policy and procedures in place. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

The policies are available to view on the school website.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when 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.



Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are:







Dedicated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)

Mrs Emma Richards









Deputy Dedicated Safeguarding Leads (DDSL):








Mr John Williams (HT)










Mrs Emma Skipper (Inclusion and Music Leader)











Mrs Lorna Smith

Higher Level Teaching Assistant and WASPS










Ms Adele Coggins

Teaching Assistant and WASPS












Miss Caroline Bishop (DHT)













Safeguarding Governor - Sara Chesterman









If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the DSLs as soon as possible the same day. Do NOT conduct your own investigation.


If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then you should report this to one of the DSLs in confidence, who will refer the matter to the Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) who will consider what action to take.
