Much Woolton Catholic Primary School

Safeguarding and Child Protection

The safety of our children is of paramount importance to all staff, governors and community members in our school. The attached information provides our policies on how we ensure the safety of our children across all aspects of children’s school and their wider lives.

If you have any concerns regarding the safety of children in our school, please contact either:

Mr A Chamberlain, Children’s Mentor and Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs M Wilson, Head of School and Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and Mrs P Regan, deputy Head of School and deputy Safeguarding Lead.

They are assisted by  Mr M White, Executive Headteacher

Please click here to access our Child Protection Policy 2021. Please read alongside Appendix 1 – ‘Outlining Safety Measures during Covid-19’ which can be read here.

We follow the statutory guidance laid out in the DFE document ‘Keeping children Safe in Education 2021’ which can be found here.

We actively support the Government’s Prevent agenda to counter radicalisation and extremism.

The Safeguarding Governors are Miss Carol Chapman, Mrs Emma Skyner Andrews and Mrs Cath Higgins if you have concerns about the Headteacher.

All our staff are fully trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection procedures (Autumn 2021) including the PREVENT duty. Volunteers are also trained as part of their induction process and are required to pass an online Safeguarding test in order to volunteer in our school.

This duty to report concerns regarding extremist views and radical ideologies being expressed by children is fully embedded in our safeguarding procedures.
