Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We expect all members of our school community to share this commitment.
If you see anything that you feel is impacting on the welfare of any member of our school community please speak to a member of staff. Please ask to see our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy for further information.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is our Deputy Head Teacher, Ms Lorraine Cox. In her absence please ask to see one of our other Child Protection officers, Mrs Deborah Jackson (Assistant Head), Ms Sarah Jackson (Family Engagement Professional) or Mrs Penny Manser (School Business Manager.) Our Heads of Year may also be able to help you – Miss Allan (Early Years), Mrs Watson (Year 3), Mrs Ogle (Year 4), Miss Law (Year 5) or Miss Murdoch (Year 6).
All members of our school community are expected to play their part in keeping children safe and appropriate levels of training are given to any individual who is taking part in school activities. All staff members undertake regular safeguarding training, e-safety training and have also undertaken Prevent training. Additionally, current DBS checks will be required for all adults who volunteer regularly in school.

All other gates are locked throughout the day and external doors are closed when practically possible. Fire drills are practised termly and ‘Safe in School’ drill (lock-down) is practised annually.
