At St Mary’s we treat the Safeguarding of ALL children as a priority. Everyone at St. Mary’s Primary School is committed to safeguarding and is responsible for keeping our children safe.
We do this by:
• providing a safe environment for children to thrive;
• identifying children who are suffering or are likely to suffer significant harm
• taking appropriate action to ensure they are kept safe both at school and at home.
To ensure children are safe we have systems for the purpose:
• preventing unsuitable people working with children
• promoting safe practice and challenge unsafe practice
• effective identification of concerns and initiating or taking appropriate action
• contributing to effective partnerships between all relevant safeguarding services
If you have any concerns about the safety of any child please speak to one of the adults responsible for Safeguarding, please see document below for named responsible people. . If this is not possible for you to speak to one of our safeguarding officers then you can contact the Local Authority’s Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) using the details below.
At St Mary's our staff, governors and visitors can be identified by their lanyard. Designated child protection officers can be identified as wearing a pink lanyard, staff will be wearing a blue lanyard, governors a orange lanyard and visitors a yellow lanyard.
