What to do if you have a concern about a child or something else about the school:
At St Mary's our designated leads for Safeguarding are:
The door is always open - please come in to speak to either of us.
Keeping children safe - and teaching them how to stay safe - is a very important role within any school.
Defined for the purpose of this guidance as
Protecting children from maltreatment;
Preventing impairment of children’s health or development;
Ensuring children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and
Taking action to enable all children to have the best life chances
More information is available in the pdf of the school's Child Protection/ Safeguarding Policy below.
Over the course of the year, children will be taught how to stay safe online and how to stay safe while 'out and about'. The NSPCC come in regularly to support deliver some lessons to the children on how to stay safe.
