Temple Meadow Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern and any observations or conversation heard and report to one of the Designated Senior Team as soon as possible, the same day.
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.
If you have any concerns that a child has been harmed or is at risk of harm please contact the School Office as soon as possible and ask to speak to any of the following staff:
· Mrs A. Van Straaten – Designated Senior Person for Child protection
· Ms C. Walsh – Deputy Designated Senior Person for Child protection
· Miss K. Evans – Level 3 Safeguarding trained
We also have a designated Safeguard Governor who is also our Chair of Governors- Mr P. Beetison.
For more details please see the following:
Our full Safeguarding Policy is available on our policies page.
All of the adults who work in school have a responsibility to read and understand all safeguarding policies and to act within accordance of the policy at all times.
All of our adults are also expected to read the DfE booklet: Keeping Children Safe in Education
