Creating an environment where every child can flourish.

Stronger together
  1. Parents
  2. Safeguarding


We take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. This means that 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 Mr Nick Garley, Mrs Joanne Meekings, Mrs Alison Richardson and Mrs Carly Cummins .

If you have any safeguarding concerns, please contact one of these people as follows:

We  follow the Northamptonshire Child Protection 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.

We are all expected to share any concerns we have about staff conduct around children with the Head Teacher. As in all schools, if there are concerns about the conduct of the Head, then these should be shared with the Chair of Governors. The staff ‘Whistleblowing Policy’ has been discussed and adopted and all staff have access to this document. 

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