This school believes that is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.
We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or risk of harm. We will work cooperatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection is Mrs R. M. Roberts
The Deputy Designated Leads for child protection are Mr C. Forrester, Mr R. Batts and Mr P Jones
The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Mr J. Morris
Our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a national project, which is being run locally in partnership with Worcestershire County Council and West Mercia Police.
Operation Encompass is a process whereby the police and county council will inform a member of staff if a child or young person has experienced any domestic incident.
