Parents and carers should be aware that Red Hall Primary School is committed to ensuring the safety and well being of all our pupils an staff. In order to do this we ensure all safeguarding procedures are in place.
All employees and people who help in school are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Check to ensure that they have no convictions for abuse against children. This helps to ensure that your children are safe in school.
As parents/carers, you need to know that the Children’s Act 1989 and 2004, Keeping Children Safe in Education (2018) requires all staff to pass on information which raises concerns that a child may be at risk from non-accidental injury, neglect, emotional or sexual abuse.
Occasionally, this duty on the Designated Safeguarding Person means we risk upsetting some parents by reporting a concern which, on investigation, proves to be unfounded. In these circumstances, it is hoped that parents/carers will appreciate how difficult it is for schools to carry out this delicate responsibility, and accept that the Designated Safeguarding Person was acting in good faith and had to take steps in the best interest of the children.
Our safeguarding team are :
|Julie Davidson (Headteacher) & Yvonne Watson|
|Deputy Safeguarding Leads|
|Debbie Hayman, Stacy Luxon & Laura Snowdon|
|Prevent Single Point of Contact (SPOC)|
