Safeguarding your child

If you have reason to believe that a child is at immediate risk of harm, contact the police on 999

As someone who cares for a child, you will know the positive impact your safeguarding, a happy and loving home life and community can have on children. Unfortunately, not all children have the same start in life.

Whilst most children are happy and healthy, we know that there are too many that are not, so we need everyone’s help to identify these children as quickly as possible and that means we need your help in achieving this.

Here are some of the most common signs of abuse and to look out for:

  • Withdrawn from every day life

  • Significant weight loss or gain

  • Acting unusually in social settings

  • Attendance at school is affected

  • Regular unexplained bruises or injuries

  • Frightened or scared of adults

*These signs are not always a result of incidents of abuse or neglect, these are also not the only signs of abuse.

 

If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child report them to social care - see below.

In school our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL)

You can talk to any member of staff in school if you are worried about a child. All members of staff, governors and volunteers have had safeguarding training.  

Our school does have special members of staff trained to deal with concerns and worries. They are called Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) and are Miss Briggs and Mrs Berry. There are a number of other staff who also have their Designated Safeguarding Lead training to support Miss Briggs and Mrs Berry.
