The school is a key front-line player, working in partnership with other children’s services, and therefore staff should always be mindful of local policies and procedures, that must be followed, and which are under the direction of the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board.
At Dunnington C of E Primary School, we recognise that:
- Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility
- The welfare of the child is paramount
- All children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse
- Working in partnership with children, young people and their parents, carers and other agencies, is essential in promoting young people’s welfare
Mrs Hancy is the designated lead for safeguarding and child protection. In her absence the deputy designated teacher, Mrs Rigden should be approached.
