St Paul’s CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection and children are made aware that they can talk to any adults if they have any concerns.
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 their parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
At St Paul’s, we take our role in safeguarding and child protection very seriously as we believe all children have the right to feel and be safe.
Our Designated Safeguarding Team at St Paul’s consists of:
Mrs Suzanne Batsford, Designated Lead
Mrs Clare Cresswell, Deputy Designated Lead
Mrs Claire Golding, Safeguarding Link Governor
