“Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility”
(Children’s Act 2004)
At Quainton Church of England Primary School, we believe that the safeguarding and promotion of child welfare is paramount. All children have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment, free of harm, bullying, abuse, discrimination and harassment. Our staff, governors and volunteers are all fully committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of our children. Staff undertake compulsory safeguarding training, equipping them with the skills to adopt safeguarding prevention strategies and, to recognise and respond to any child safety issues if they arise.
We aim to achieve child safety by ensuring:
We always aim to work in partnership with the parents to resolve any problems. However, at times, it may be necessary to involve other agencies if we think the child’s welfare is at risk. We also work very closely with the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB), providing an integrative approach to supporting our children and their families when they need it.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is the headteacher, James Vernon. Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Shaun Hughes. For further safeguarding enquiries, please contact either on 01296 655242.
