Safeguarding

 

At Wykeham Primary School, all governors and staff are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people as we believe that this is of paramount importance.

We aim:

 

      • to help ensure that children within our school are kept safe from harm and abuse;
      • to ensure that all stakeholders are safe and feel that they are able to put the welfare of the children first without concern that there will be any negative consequences attached to their actions;
      • to ensure that all adults who have contact with children in school have been properly vetted and cleared as suitable to work and support children in our care/charge;
      • to ensure that all adults who have contact with children in school have been trained to undertake their safeguarding responsibilities effectively.  

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment and these can be viewed at the bottom of this page. 

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