Keeping Children Safe
Child Protection Statement
The health, safety and well-being of all our children are of paramount importance to all the adults who work in our school. Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.
At St Peter’s we respect our children. The atmosphere within our school is one that provides a physically and emotionally safe and secure environment. We provide opportunities which enable our children to take and make decisions for themselves.
Our teaching of Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship (PSHE & C), as part of the National Curriculum, helps to develop appropriate attitudes in our children and helps them learn how to recognise different risks in different situations, and how to behave in response to them.
The Headteacher, Mr O Martindale, is the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Harriet Morris (Assistant Headteacher) and Miss Becka Thomas (SENCo).
We have adopted a software package called MyConcern to support our safeguarding arrangements. The requirements of relevant legislation, statutory guidance, our own policies and the safeguarding training provided by us or on our behalf will always remain the definitive source of safeguarding guidance for users of MyConcern. Any questions about the use of MyConcern should be directed to Mr Martindale - Designated Safeguarding Lead/Person.
Should you need to make contact with us at Trust level, our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mark Lacey, CEO. They can be contacted through our offices on 01722 746948. Please inform the person answering the telephone that you are calling with regard to a safeguarding matter.
In an emergency situation, or where the school is not in session, you may need to contact your local social services or the police.
