Safeguarding Children at Powick CE Primary School.
Powick Primary School believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children. We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We will work
co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first - unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection is Miss Worthington
The Deputy Designated Persons for child protection are Mrs Souter and Mrs Drinkwater
The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Mrs Julia Page
The Designated Teacher for Children Looked After is Miss Worthington.
We review our policy and procedures on an annual basis.
Volunteers and visitors will also be asked to read Keeping Children Safe in Education Part 1 and other important safeguarding documents.
