St Margaret’s CE VA Primary School is committed to keeping our children safe. By providing a safe environment for children to learn and play and by identifying children who are, or may be, suffering harm, the school endeavour to ensure they are kept safe both at school and at home.

To achieve this, we have systems in place which are designed to:

  • Create and maintain a safe learning environment.
  • Identif child welfare concerns and taking appropriate action.
  • Use the curriculum to enable our children to develop keep safe strategies
  • Create a listening culture to hear the child’s voice
  • Operate safe recruitment and selection procedures to prevent unsuitable people working with our children.

Anyone visiting the school shares the responsibility to keep children safe whilst on our premises and will be required to work within the guidelines of our safeguarding procedures.

If at anytime you have concerns about the welfare of a child Mr Jones, the Designated Safeguarding Lead, should be contacted. In his absence please speak to Mrs Boud (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead).

For more detailed information, please ask to see our Safeguarding Policy which is part of a set of policies designed to create a safe environment for our children. All of these policies are available on request.
