At Weston Shore Infants we strive to make sure all our pupils are safe in school, at home and in the community. Our staff are here to keep our pupils safe and secure.
Our commitment to safeguarding is paramount. The school has a duty of care and the right to take reasonable action to ensure the welfare and safety of its pupils. If a member of staff has cause to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or any other form of abuse, the school will follow child protection procedures and inform Children's Services of its concern.
Our policy on Safeguarding is available below and is reviewed by School staff and the Governing body on an annual basis.
We have designated lead staff who monitor the effectiveness of the policy and, where necessary, liaise with the local authority when significant safeguarding concerns arise.
Designated Safeguarding Leads - Vanessa Ridler - Headteacher
Sarah Fugard - Business Manager
Governor in charge of Safeguarding - John Martin
