At Marjory Kinnon School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.
Our Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Amy Higgins, Assistant Headteacher - Interventions and Safeguarding. Mrs Higgins can be contacted by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Local Authority Safeguarding Team and the school has a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions, our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parents/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a discussion may be contrary to a child’s welfare.We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Safeguarding Lead.
