We take our responsibilities to safeguard your children very seriously. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility: all Staff, Governors and Volunteers should play their full part in keeping children safe. Please find below a copy of our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy to which each member of staff adhere to.


We work within Government Legislation Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020 in conjunction with Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015. These documents highlight current significant national issues including preventing Radicalisation in line with the 'Prevent' Strategy (part of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism) and with the internet available to every child in today’s modern society an increased awareness of issues such as Grooming and Child Sexual Exploitation. We work alongside external agencies including Health, Social Care, and Police to ensure all our children are kept safe and protected from harm.


The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) for Child Protection is Mrs Tina Cox (Headteacher).

The Deputy Designate Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) for Child Protection is  Mr Andrew Atter (Assistant Headteacher and Y6 Class Teacher).

Should you have any concerns about a pupil, or a pupil makes a disclosure to you, please speak to Mrs de Wet or Mr Atter immediately.  

It is important to remember that, however small a concern may seem to you, it may be one of a series of concerns raised by different adults and therefore, recording such concerns enable the school to take the appropriate action to ensure that all children’s needs are being met.


All details are treated confidentially and will only be shared if there are concerns that a child is at risk.  It is always our aim to share our concerns transparently with the child’s parent or guardian before making a referral.  However, we reserve our right to refer without consent if we are sufficiently concerned about a child’s safety or we are unable to contact the parent/guardian after reasonable attempts have been made.
