Designated Safeguarding Lead 

 

Safeguarding Statement

Walderslade Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment. Safeguarding children and protecting them from harm is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play.

We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection & Safeguarding. 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, neglect and sexual abuse and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the policies section on our website. On occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult outside agencies such as social services. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed first with parents/carers before any such referrals are made, unless of course we believe that such action may be contrary to a child’s welfare.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism, and all staff have CSE and FGM training.
