Safeguarding at Wittering Primary School

We have a statutory duty to 'safeguard and promote the welfare of children'. If you have any concerns about the health and safety of a child at this school or feel that something may be troubling them, you should share this information with an appropriate member of school staff straight away. Some issues (eg child's appearance, hygiene, general behaviour etc) can be shared with any teacher or member of support staff in school.

Do not worry that you may be reporting matters which may seem small - better that you tell us something which does turn out to be a minor issue rather than not telling us, and we miss a worrying situation.

However, if you think the matter is serious and may be related to a child protection issue eg physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect, you MUST talk to one of our designated safeguarding leads. If you are unable to contact them you can ask our Senior Leadership Team or office staff to locate them and ask them to come and speak to you immediately about a confidential and urgent matter.

Any allegations or disclosures involving a member of staff or volunteer in school must be reported directly to the Headteacher, unless it involves the Headteacher in which case it should be reported directly to the Chair of the Governing body.
