At Streatley CofE Primary School we are fully committed to safeguarding our pupils and staff. We take notice of and adhere to all the national and local policies and guidance in regard to Safeguarding Children and Young People.
Safeguarding is summarised as:
- protecting children from harm
- preventing damage to children’s health or development
- making sure that children grow up safely, and
- taking action to make sure all children have the best start in life.
What is safeguarding?
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a responsibility to safeguard children.
At Streatley Primary we take our responsibility very seriously and ensure we maintain an ‘it could happen here’ attitude where safeguarding is concerned.
If you become aware of any of the signs of abuse or neglect with one of our pupils please notify Miss Roberts (designated lead Safeguarding Officer) or Mrs Fenwick-Stubbs (deputy lead designated safeguarding officer).
KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE DOCUMENTS
These are the key documents about keeping children safe in education. All those that work with children must understand these documents and know what to do if they are worried about a child. Every member of staff at Streatley has received training and will do everything they can to protect children from harm.
