Safeguarding at Christ Church CE Primary School

Safeguarding Children at Christ Church Primary School

"Pupils feel safe in the school because they understand and appreciate the vigilance of staff. Pupils believe that staff act quickly and decisively when there are instances of poor behaviour or bullying. Pupils on the school’s ‘safe squad’ help to reinforce this message, for example by devising a child-friendly anti-bullying policy"

Ofsted, June 2017

Christ Church Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting welfare of all children, young people and adults working within it. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. 

We ensure that our safeguarding training, policy and procedures are in place and are consistently implemented. Parents and carers are welcome to read this policy, it can be found within the "Policy" section of the 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 and carers first, unless we are advised that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

Our Designated Child Protection Leads are:

Mrs M Szydlowska, Headteacher

Miss S Jones, Deputy Headteacher

Mrs D Baldwin, Family Partnership Worker

If you are concerned about a child's welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversations heard, and report to one of the Designated Child Protection Officers as soon as possible. DO NOT conduct your own investigation.
