It is our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. Child Protection forms part of our safeguarding responsibilities.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children's health or development
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children have the best outcomes

Child Protection is a part of safeguarding and promoting welfare. It refers to the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are:

Lead DSL

  • Mr Anthony Marsh (Director for Primary at Enlighten Learning Trust)

Deputy DSLs

  • Mrs Maggie Down (Co Head Teacher)
  • Mrs Helen Woolvet (Acting Deputy Head Teacher)
  • Miss Jane Mason (Inclusion Leader)
  • Miss Rebecca Squizzoni (SENDCo)


If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the DSLs as soon as possible the same day. Do NOT conduct your own investigation.

If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which could suggest that they are unsuitable to work with children) then you should report this to one of the Co Head Teachers in confidence, (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) – who will consider what action to take.
