Safeguarding Statement

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children

 and expects all staff,  volunteers and people contracted to work on site

 to share this commitment.


 This means that we have a Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place.

 Everyone on site must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. 


 Our Designated Safeguarding Leaders (DSLs) are:

 Mrs. Treharne, Headteacher


 Mrs Hooper, Deputy Headteacher and Senior Teacher in EYFS 


 If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your

 concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of our DSLs

 as soon as possible.  Please do not conduct your own investigation.

If you are unable to contact a DSL at the time,

please contact Mr Chalmers, Chair of Governors on:  01483 561501 


Reverend Rona Stuart - Bourne, our Child Protection Governor on: 01483 561501


 If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of an adult on site (which

 could suggest that she/he is a danger to children) then you should report this to

 a DSL in confidence and she will consider what action to take.
