Safeguarding Our Children

Do you know what to do if you have a concern about a pupil's safety or welfare?
Firstly- you should never feel guilty about this. Pupil safeguarding and promoting the safety and well-being of all our little learners is our absolute top priority, above all else. We WANT to hear from you and we WANT to help.

There are members of staff in our school whose specific responsibility it is to handle concerns of this nature; they are:

Mrs Clarke : Designated Teacher for Child Protection (DT)

Miss Millar and Mrs Rodgers: Deputy Designated Teacher for Child Protection (DDT)

If you have a concern of any type please do not investigate, simply mention it to your child's class teacher or a member of staff above and they will know what to do.


If you aren't comfortable with that, you may speak with Mrs Heather Clarke or any other member of staff who will help you.

Our Designated Governor is Mrs Gillian McLean and Mrs Margaret Rainey, our chair of Board of Governors are also members of the Safeguarding Team. 

Safeguarding is more than just 'Child Protection', it encompasses a whole range of areas designed to ensure our children are safe when in and out of school.

The District Inspector found our Safeguarding of a high standard in our recent Safeguarding inspection in September 2017.

 

Here are a few of the main policies (guiding documents) we use in school to help make our learning community as happy and safe as possible:
