Child Protection and Safeguarding Key Information, Policies and Guidance

Child safeguarding and protection is a priority in our school and all staff are trained regularly to ensure our systems and practices are fit for purpose and robust.

We work closely with parents, carers and extended families as well as outside agencies to ensure that any concerns are addressed promptly and efficiently.

If you are concerned about the safety or welfare of any of our children, please speak to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads immediately.


Designated Safeguarding Lead:  Sally Dreckmann (Headteacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads:  Caroline Sugden (Deputy Headteacher), Jennifer Gwynn (SENDCO, Mon - Wed) and Nikki Prosser (Senior Teacher)

All regular parent helpers and volunteers are DBS checked before they can begin volunteering in our school.  Volunteers undertake safeguarding training as part of their induction.
