At Parkhead Community Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff, governors, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
We recognise the importance of providing an ethos and environment within school that will help children to feel safe, secure and respected; encourage them to talk openly to adults; and enable them to have the confidence that they will be listened to. All staff receive annual training and regular updates throughout the year and are alert to signs of abuse and neglect. All staff understand safe professional practice and adhere to our code of conduct and other related policies.
Purpose of our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy
Our safeguarding policy provides clear direction to all school stakeholders about expected practice in dealing with safeguarding issues. It outlines clearly the procedures to be followed, ensuring that safeguarding concerns are handled sensitively, effectively and in a way that supports and protects the needs of the child.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Chard; Head Teacher
