Safeguarding at St Mary's CofE Primary School
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School staff are particularly important as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating. Schools and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children working with social care, the police and health services both to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
We expect all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
If you are concerned about the safety of any child in our school, you must report this to one of the Safeguarding Team.
If you are concerned about the conduct of a member of staff or volunteer in our school you must contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead or in their absence, a member of the Safeguarding Team.
If you have any concerns, the designated persons to deal with any concerns are:
Mr P Stephenson (Headteacher)
Mrs J Winterbottom (Deputy Headteacher)
Mrs G Marriott (School Family Worker)
