Safeguarding

Greatworth Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy.

This term, we will be attaching a Safeguarding Information Booklet on varying topics every week. Being aware will help protect our children and vulnerable people in society.

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 parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Lesley Lutas-Brown (Head Teacher). Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Megan Scott and Mrs Souter is also a DSL. The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school is Mrs Katy Emms. Their contact details can be found on our contact page.
