Here at St. Paul’s Church of England Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which is available to view in the policies section of this website. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Child Protection Officer is Mrs Charlesworth – Headteacher
Our Backup Designated Child Protection Officers are: Mrs Horrocks – Inclusion Leader & Mrs Ormerod – Assistant Headteacher
The School Governor responsible for Child Protection is Mr A Good.
