Safeguarding Overview  Sheet

We all have a statutory duty to “promote and safeguard the welfare or children” (section 175 Education Act 2002)

If you have any concerns about the health and safety of any child or young person in this school, or feel that something may be troubling them, you must share this information with an appropriate member of staff straight away. A yellow concern form must be completed and handed to the Headteacher or the Deputy Headteacher. Yellow forms can be found in the staffroom or at the school office. Some issues e.g a child’s appearance, hygiene or general behaviour can be shared with any teacher or member of support staff here.

Do not worry that you may be reporting small matters – we would rather you tell us things that turn out to be small, rather than miss a worrying situation.

If you think however, that the matter is very serious and may be related to a child protection concern i.e. physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect, you MUST talk to one of the people below immediately.

If you are unable to contact any of them you should ask the office staff to find them and ask them to speak to you straight away on an urgent confidential matter.

Any allegations or disclosure involving a member of staff, a child’s foster carer or a volunteer at this school MUST be reported directly to the Headteacher without delay. If the allegation involves the Headteacher it must be reported to the chair of Governors, again without delay.


The people you should talk to at school are:


The Designated person for Child Protection is:

Mrs Sally Henshall, Headteacher

Telephone Number: 01977 615080





The Deputy Designated person for Child Protection is:

Mrs Alison Buckler, Deputy Headteacher

Telephone Number: 01977 615080



The Governor who oversees Child Protection is Mrs Leanne Probert. She can be contacted via the school office.


Thank you for supporting and safeguarding the children and young people at our school.
