Our Aims

  • To ensure that all children are provided with a safe, happy and healthy learning environment where child-welfare is central to practice.
  • To ensure that all staff are aware of the necessary precautions and actions to take when dealing with child protection issues.
  • To establish and maintain an ethos where children and parents are secure and comfortable in talking to staff about concerns and know that they will be taken seriously.
  • To establish and maintain procedures for safe recruitment, working relationships with parents and with external support agencies.
  • To work with other schools in the local area to share good practice, taking advice from experts where necessary.


At times, it may be necessary to share information and work in partnership with external agencies if there are concerns about a child’s welfare. Concerns will always be discussed with the child’s parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

Our designated Safeguarding Leads are: Katie Jones (Headteacher) and  Ellie Farmer (Class Teacher).
