Safeguarding


KEEPING YOUR CHILD SAFE

St. George’s Central CE Primary School and Nursery is committed to safeguarding. Safeguarding means keeping your child happy, healthy and safe in school. All staff and governors are trained at regular intervals and are aware of how to keep our children safe and what signs to look out for.  Our children are encouraged to share any concerns and we have robust policies and processes in place that underpin safeguarding.

KEY PEOPLE YOU CAN TALK TO IN SCHOOL:
(Sometimes called Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs)

CHILD PROTECTION
In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill- treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, the Designated Safeguarding Lead may report this concern to Social Services and/or other appropriate agencies.

Please remember that when the school refers a concern about a child to the Social Services Department, it is not accusing the parents of abuse but requesting that further investigation takes place to establish whether a child is at risk.

The School has a Designated Safeguarding Governor: Mrs Fiona Taylor

WHAT WE TEACH
We offer a secure and encouraging environment where children feel safe and their spiritual, moral and cultural development is enhanced through the delivery of our whole school curriculum, including our Religious Education and PSHE curriculum, core Christian values, work with external agencies, charities and the local community. We also make regular use of the latest ‘Stay Safe’ newsletter with children to reinforce key messages.

RECRUITMENT
We carefully check that all staff, governors and volunteers are safe to work with our children. A number of checks are made including DBS checks, references, ID and employment history.  We keep a Single Central Record of all this information and this is regularly monitored.

Visitors and volunteers are rigorously checked in much the same way staff are before they can have any unsupervised access to our children.  All adults in school wear an ID badge.


REPORT ABUSE
If you have concern that a child is being harmed as a result of abuse or neglect, you must not keep these concerns to yourself. 

KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
