The governors and staff at Great Addington Church of England Primary School fully recognise the contribution that they make to safeguarding children. We recognise that all staff and volunteers have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm. Our school procedures for safeguarding children are in line with Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NSCP). We ensure that everyone working in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with children.It also means that we have staff members who are specifically trained and nominated as the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) within school. These staff are Lucy Kingsnorth (Principal DSL), Josh Marshall (Deputy) and Tracey Molsher (Deputy).

We are all expected to share any concerns we have about staff conduct around children with the Headteacher.  As in all schools, if there are concerns about the conduct of the Head, these should be shared with the Chair of Governors, Harry Darby, as follows:

The staff Whistleblowing Policy has been discussed and adopted and all staff have access to this document.

We also follow the Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Partnership Procedures and the Local Safeguarding Children's Board local guidance and have systems in place to share concerns regarding children's welfare with our DSLs, with parents and with relevant external agencies.  Part of our legal duty to safeguard our children may also include us needing to consult specifically with and take advice from, the Police or Children's Social Care, should the need arise.

By working closely together as a staff and with our partner agencies, we firmly believe that we will continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our children.

Please take the time to read our Policies and do not hesitate to contact the school should you have any questions.
