At Allens Croft Primary School we take the safety and welfare of our pupils very seriously. We all have a responsibility to notice when a child may be at risk of harm and pass our concerns to someone who can act to protect them.
We recognise that some children may be victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse, and will act accordingly in the best interests of the child involving relevant services as appropriate. If you have a concern that a child is being harmed, is at risk of harm, or if you receive a disclosure you must contact the following staff member as quickly as possible: Nicola Hadley. If this person is not available, please contact Paula Weaver, Rebecca Timms, Bethany Shannahan or Katie Hardy.
If you have concerns about the safety of one of our pupils please speak with one of our Duty Safeguarding Leads (DSLs). Our DSLs are:
All staff (including supply agency staff), students and volunteers need a current DBS certificate to work at Allens Croft and a copy of this is logged. Staff will also be asked to give the office copies of qualifications, a DBS record and proof of identification.
Our staff and governors have been trained on safeguarding in line the the KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE IN EDUCATION document and have taken part in 'PREVENT'. You can read our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy below.
