The safety and welfare of all our pupils is of paramount importance, it overrides all other considerations.
We take our responsibilities in this area very seriously. All staff and adults who work with children have DBS checks in place.
Children may disclose information to staff regarding problems with their home or personal life or teachers may have a concern. The authority requires Head teachers to report any obvious or suspected cases of child abuse which includes non-accidental injury, severe physical neglect, emotional abuse and/or sexual abuse.
This procedure is intended to protect children at risk. All staff are instructed to inform the Designated Safeguarding Person immediately if they have any concerns. We will then notify the relevant agencies as necessary. In matters of child protection, this may need to be without parental consent.
If you have concerns regarding the Headteacher please contact the governor responsible for safeguarding, Mrs Sarah Lewis or the Chair of Governors, Councillor Groucutt. Alternatively you could contact Children’s Services.
The All Wales Child Protection Procedures and the school Child Protection Policy are available to read in the school office. If you have any concerns about a child you may speak to Mrs King or call Children’s Services Child Duty & Assessment Team: 01291 635 669
