Mother and Child

Safeguarding

“DOING NOTHING IS NOT AN OPTION” (Lord Laming)

                

We all have a statutory duty to safeguard, protect and promote the welfare of children and at our school we take this responsibility seriously. 

 

This means that adults in school listen to children and talk to parents and carers about worries.

 

We need your help during the Coronavirus crisis to help us. We think that children will have time away from school as families self-isolate.

 

This means school will not see some children or parents/carers as often.

You can contact us - we will listen to any worries or concerns you have about children and families.

 

Any worry will be seen and read by Senior Management and other

specially trained teachers.

Please e-mail any worries or concerns to:

safeguarding@cattongrove.norfolk.sch.uk OR

Call Children’s Advice and Duty Service on 03448008020

Please include your name and phone number.

Name the child or family you are worried about.

Tell us - is it something you have seen or have been told?

 

 

If it is an emergency, 

CALL POLICE ON 999

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your information will be treated confidentially this means we do not tell the family about who has told us about a worry. We do share

information with other professionals if we are worried that a child may be at risk of harm.

The specially trained people you can talk to in school are:

 

Mrs. Rider (Safeguarding leader)

 

Miss. Lacey (Deputy Headteacher & Safeguarding)

Mrs. Lorne (Headteacher)

 

Ms. Shenton (Deputy Headteacher)

 

Mr. Greenall (Assistant Headteacher for Learning/Inclusion)
