OFSTED OUTSTANDING PROVIDER

Safeguarding

The welfare and safety of children who attend our school is our paramount concern. We promote the health, well-being and safety of the pupils in all we do.

Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.

As stipulated by the Children Act (1989), the Education Act (2002) and the Protection of Children Act (2001), the staff at Newcomen Primary School have a duty to report any concerns that they may have that any child may be at risk from significant harm or may be suffering significant harm, particularly as a consequence of possible abuse.

All adults working with or on behalf of children have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

All staff at Newcomen Primary School undergo a thorough safer recruitment and vetting process. We have a Safeguarding Team which consists of:

  • Designated Safeguarding Lead and Primary School Representative on Local Safeguarding Childrens Board Miss K Pusztai (Head Teacher)
  • Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead Mr E Jones ( Deputy Head Teacher)
  • Designated Governor for Safeguarding : Mr B Greenwood ( Vice Chair of Governors).

We also employ the services of an educational safeguarding consultant, Mr Pete Davies, who undertakes the following services:

  • Completion of Safeguarding Audit every 18 months.
  • Formal supervision of Head Teacher on a termly basis  by Safeguarding Consultant.
  • Staff and Governor Training
  • E-Safety training for children and parents.

What to do if you think a child may be at risk of abuse or neglect
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 member of the public 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.
