Safeguarding

 

Westacre Middle School is committed to safeguarding and ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of every child. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share in this commitment.

We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff receive regular Safeguarding and Child Protection training. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The procedures which we follow have been laid down by Worcestershire county council safeguarding team and the school has adopted a 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 parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Catherine Doolin (Deputy Head)

The Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Donna Evans (Head Teacher)

Our Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Judith Aldridge

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment.
