We take our role of safeguarding pupils very seriously. We comply with National and Local policy. We ensure our staff are trained to deal with concerns they may have about a pupil and how to deal with a disclosure made by a child.
Our safeguarding policy explains our approach and procedures. This is updated at least annually. If a parent or member of the public outside of our school has a concern about one of our pupils then they can contact the staff below in school or call the local safeguarding service:Coventry Safeguarding
In the interest of safeguarding children there may be occasions when the school has to consult other agencies without a parent’s prior knowledge. The school’s first concern is the child’s welfare and the school has a duty to act to protect the child at all times. Such consultation may result in a formal referral which could prompt visits from social services and/or the police.
We fully understand that this can be a very distressing set of circumstances, but we can only assure you that we have a legal duty and responsibility to follow the procedures laid down by the Coventry Safeguarding Board, a copy of which is available in school, as is our own policy.
