At St Peter’s Church of England Primary School we listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All staff, governors and volunteers are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the policies section on our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there are concerns about a child's welfare. 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.
All school staff are trained to look out for signs of harm and are required to record and report concerns to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). In school we use a secure recording system called Child Protection Online Monitoring System (CPoms) to log and monitor concerns.
Please let us know if you have any concerns or would like additional information.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Ms Deborah Skuse (Pastoral and Safeguarding Lead)
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Ms Genny Oliver (Deputy Head teacher)
