SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT 2017/2018
St Ambrose Barlow Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This means that we have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and procedures in place.
Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy on request. 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 his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. If a member of staff is concerned about a child’s welfare, they will record their concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to the DSL as soon as possible the same day.
If a member of staff has concerns which relate to the actions or behaviour of another member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then this will be reported to the DSL in confidence who is our Headteacher (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) who will consider what action to take.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) are:
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mr McCann
Deputy Safeguarding Lead: Mr Doherty
Governor Lead: Mr Cooke
On 1st March 2017, our school commissioned an independent Safeguarding Review. The outcome of this review stated that safeguarding in our school was ‘Highly effective.’
