All Saints School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This means that we have a Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place. All adults who work or volunteer in school must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. 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. All adults working with children in our school are required to have a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check -formally known as a Criminal Records Bureau check.
All policies can be found on our policies page - click here.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Susan Costa (Headteacher), Mr Harry King (Deputy Headteacher) & Mrs Susannah Goward (SENDCo)
Our designated governor for child protection and safeguarding is Mrs Alison Styles
The Prevent Duty
From July 2015 all schools (and other organisations) have a duty to protect children from radicalisation and extremism. The Prevent strategy is not just about discussing extremism itself which may not be appropriate for younger children. Through our Christian values we teach children about tolerance and mutual respect.
The school holds an annual Respect week which focuses on exploring and valuing diversity and personal safety.
