Safeguarding

At Beamont, Safeguarding is everybody's business, all of the time. 

 

Beamont Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

 

We review our child protection policy and procedures frequently, with updated training provided for all school staff in order to offer a consistent, high quality approach to child protection and safeguarding.  Our policy can be found in the Policies section, under the 'About us' tab.  Our practice and procedures are informed and driven by the work of Warrington Safeguarding Children Board - http://warringtonlscb.org/

 

Our children have worked on their own Safeguarding Policy through the School Council - file is at the bottom of the page.

 

What to do if you are concerned:

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record (in written form) your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report it to one of the Child Protection members of staff at the earliest opportunity on the same day.  DO NOT conduct your own investigation. 

 

If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff or volunteer in school (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then you should report this to the Headteacher (or Deputy Headteacher in her absence) who will consider what action to take and seek relevant advice.

 

If the concern relates to the Headteacher refer the matter to the Chair of Governors: Mrs Ruth Agnew.

 

Should you ever have urgent concerns for the immediate safety of a child, you should contact the police.

 

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

 

Our school has recruitment procedures that support the safeguarding of young people, as laid out in the Local Authority Safe Recruitment guidance.
