At Upton Snodsbury CE First School, the protection of the children in our care is one of our key priorities and responsibilities. We are committed to the safeguarding, well-being, health and safety of all our children. We have a caring and nurturing ethos and are an inclusive school.
We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share in this commitment. All of our staff at school receive annual training as well as information on updates and new policies. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).
On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.
