At Spring Grove Primary School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.
We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Named Safeguarding Lead.
The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the LA Safeguarding Team and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.
The Named Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Sue Colley (Headteacher), Mrs A. Gratton (EYFS Lead) and Ms M Hambrier ( Pupil Voice Leader/KS1 Teacher).
If you require any further information please contact the Headteacher.
