Huntley C of E Primary School Safeguarding Statement
Huntley C of E Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This means that we have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and clear procedures in place which we refer to in our prospectus. Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy below or alternatively a printed copy of the policy can be requested.
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.
Please contact one of our designated leads if you have any queries or concerns. We are always available to talk anything through and signpost to further support if needed.
