Safeguarding

We all have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, and at our school we take this responsibility seriously.

If you have any concerns about a child or young person in our school, you must share this information immediately with our Designated Safeguarding Lead (Karen Taylor) or the alternate post holder (John Rous Milligan).

Do not think that your worry is insignificant if it is about hygiene, appearance or behaviour?  We would rather you told us as we would rather know about something that appears small than miss a worrying situation.

If you think the matter is very serious and may be related to child protection, for example, physical, emotional, sexual abuse or neglect, you must find one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads detailed below and provide them with a written record of your concern. A copy of the form to complete is below, via the link and others can be obtained from the VSSS office.   Please ensure you complete all sections as described.

If you are unable to locate either of the Designated Safeguarding Leads ask a member of the school office staff to find them and to ask them to speak with you immediately about a confidential and urgent matter.

Any allegation concerning a member of staff, a child's foster carer or a volunteer should be reported immediately to the Headteacher.  If an allegation is made about the Headteacher you should pass this information to the Chair of the Governing Body.
