Safeguarding

SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY

If you are concerned about anything in school, please inform us immediately.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is

Mrs Scott or Mrs Hopkins in her absence.

 

If you are concerned about a child outside of school anyone can make a referral to:

 

FIRST RESPONSE

0166 305 0005

(Including out of hours)

Or online

http://irsb.org.uk/childreport

 

This can be done anonymously if you have any concerns, but reporting incidents could be vital for a child’s safety.

Wymondham CE Primary School and RISE fully recognise the contribution we can make to protect children and support pupils in school.  Our policies and practice reflect our commitment to safeguard and promote our pupils’ welfare, safety and health by fostering an honest, open, caring and supportive climate.  The pupils’ welfare is of paramount importance.

 

We recognise the following four elements as pivotal to our responsibilities:

 

  • Prevention (e.g. positive school atmosphere, teaching and pastoral support for pupils, safer recruitment procedures);
  • Protection (by following agreed procedures, ensuring staff are trained and supported to respond appropriately and sensitively to Child Protection concerns);
  • Support (to pupils and school staff and to children who may have been harmed or abused);
  • Working with parents (to ensure appropriate communications and actions are undertaken).
