Schools and their staff form part of the wider safeguarding system for children.  Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.

Keeping Children Safe in Education (DfE September 2018)

Our children’s safety and welfare is our priority. We have a variety of policies and procedures in school to help us keep children safe. These policies and procedures follow locally agreed guidelines laid down by the Essex Safeguarding Children Board (ESCB).


In school we have trained designated safeguarding officers, they are:-

  • Mr Carver - Headteacher
  • Mrs Barber - Deputy Headteacher
  • Mrs Johns - Assistant Headteacher
  • Mrs Hayes - Assistant Headteacher


Our school safeguarding Governor is Mrs S. Lawrence.
