Primary School

'Love, Courage and Fellowship'

Safeguarding

 Don't think: 'What if I'm wrong?'

Think: 'What if I'm right?'

 

Chawton CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  This means that we have a safeguarding culture and have Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies and procedures in place which are robust in approach and expectation. All staff are trained annually on Safeguarding and we follow this up throughout the year with actions taken from our annual safeguarding audit as well as issues which arise.  We follow our robust  procedures.

Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy which is accessible under policies on this website or a hard copy on request.

Our policy and practice is in line with, and supports, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and all national statutory requirements. 

 

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. 

 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is:

Mrs Sarah Goldsworthy

Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is:

Miss Kirsty Blandford

Our Designated Safeguarding Governor is:

Mrs Sarah Addison

 

What to do if you are concerned...

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please contact the school office so that they can immediately find a DSL for you to talk to. We also have key phone numbers in the school enabling you to contact relevant authorities.

Alternatively you can call Hampshire Children’s Services on 0300 5551384 or the Police.

Equally if your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) please ask to speak to a DSL in confidence, who will follow  (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher)  procedures as set out in our policies.
