Yattendon C.E. Primary School Safeguarding Statement
Yattendon C.E. Primary School is committed to protect and safeguard the welfare of all of the children in its care and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
"The welfare of the child is paramount." (Children's Act 1989)
The school has a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. It is pro-active in protecting children through ensuring robust and clear systems are in place should any concerns arise. Early identification of children who may be vulnerable or at risk of harm is key to our approach.
Yattendon C.E.Primary School is a safe environment for children and this is managed through regular health and safety monitoring.
We have a current Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy in place. This is available in the 'Policies' section of the school website. All staff are required to read this policy as well as 'Keeping Children Safe in education' - part One (September 2016)
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare.
Our designated person for safeguarding is:
Mrs Rachel Manley (Headteacher)
Our deputy designated person for safeguarding is:
Mrs Libby Weedon (Senior Teacher)
Our Safeguarding Governor is:
