We take safeguarding children very seriously. All children have the right to be safe.
All of our staff receive regular, face to face training as well as follow up online training as appropriate. We use a computerised system called CPOMS to record any issues and this allows all adults to report concerns as quickly as possible. We have an open door policy and children and parents can access support and guidance from lots of places at all times.
We work in partnership with external agencies including safeguarding, social care, the police, school nursing service and lots more to ensure that pupils are well looked after.
It is the responsibility of every adult in our school to ensure that we maintain the highest level of awareness about possible unsafe practices and deal with any issues immediately and appropriately.
If a child is in immediate danger, left alone or missing, you should contact the police directly and/or an ambulance using 999.
If there is no immediate danger but you are concerned about a child’s welfare during school hours, contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leaders (DSL) listed below:
Mrs Katie Towers
Mrs Sian Ellison
Deputy Designated Safeguarding
EYFS Lead, KS1 Lead
Mr Adam Cooper
