Safeguarding

Parents, carers and staff all have the safety and wellbeing of our children at the centre of the decisions they make, both in and out of School. Keeping children safe is everyones responsibility. Members of the public, as well as staff in helping agencies, can play a vital role in helping to protect children from abuse or neglect. Whilst the child’s welfare is always the most important consideration, there is also a duty on professionals to work in partnership with parents, to provide support where necessary and to ensure that children remain with their families wherever possible.

If any person thinks a child may be at risk of abuse or neglect, they should contact the local Children’s Services (formerly known as Social Services) or the NSPCC National Helpline.

NSPCC National Helpline Tel: (0808) 8005000

If a member of the public considers that there is an emergency situation, they should dial 999 for the Police.

Staff at Overfields Primary School receive annual Child Protection training. The School maintains a Single Central Record which records all the adults who work with children at our school. We also only work with contractors (for example builders) who can meet our requirements regarding safeguarding of pupils.

Mrs Watson is the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection.

Mr Johns, Mrs Wilson and Mrs Henman are  the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads.

Mrs Thompson is the Designated Governor Safeguarding Lead; all can be contacted through school.
