Looking out for each other is key at High Spen Primary. This section of our website holds key information around safeguarding.
All adults in school hold a responsibility to keep children and other adults safe from harm. We have a simple saying in school ‘Don’t go home with a niggle!’ We believe the best way to maintain a safe environment for our children is to share observations / concerns with another member of staff, no matter how small. Concerns are shared in absolute confidence and quickly passed on to one of our two Designated Teachers – Mr Firth or Mrs Heron.
We have recently bought in the support of Clennell Education Solutions who will now be delivering our staff and Governor safeguarding training as well as helping us absorb and implement any new national guidelines.
Our current Child Protection Policy can be viewed here.
Following training with Martin Bailey, Director of Animate 2 Educate, our Governors met, discussed and adopted a High Spen hybrid of Martin’s model Online Safety and Acceptable Use Policy.If you have any thoughts on this policy please speak to Mr Firth or comment below.
