Safeguarding

Keeping your child safe

Worth Valley Primary School is committed to safeguarding. Safeguarding means keeping your child happy, healthy and safe in school. All staff are trained at regular intervals and are aware of how to keep our pupils safe and what signs to look out for.  Our pupils are encouraged to share any concerns and we have robust policies and processes in place that underpin safeguarding.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) are:
Miss C Lodge
Headteacher
Mrs R Page
Deputy Headteacher
Mrs C Oram
Early Years Leader
Mrs L Boothroyd
KS2 Leader
Lead DSLDeputy DSLDeputy DSLDeputy DSL
Child Protection

In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill- treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, the Designated Safeguarding Lead may report this concern to Social Services and/or other appropriate agencies.

Please remember that when the school refers a concern about a child to the Social Services Department, it is not accusing the parents of abuse but requesting that further investigation takes place to establish whether a child is at risk.

Please see the Child Protection and Safeguarding Policies.

What we teach

We offer a secure and encouraging environment where children feel safe and their spiritual, moral and cultural development is enhanced through the delivery of our whole school curriculum,  including our PSHE/RE curriculum, core values, work with external agencies, charities and the local community.

 

Recruitment

We carefully check that all staff and volunteers are safe to work with our children. A number of checks are made including DBS checks, references, ID and employment history.  We keep a single central record of all this information and this is regularly monitored.

Visitors and volunteers are rigorously checked in much the same way staff are before they can have any unsupervised access to our children.  Any contractors on site have to read the Safeguarding Information Leaflet before being signed into the building.  All adults in school wear an ID badge.
