At Lower Peover CofE Primary School, the well-being and health and safety of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.
We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Safeguarding and Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).
The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Cheshire West and Chester Safeguarding Team and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all.
On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.
Designated Safeguarding Leads
- Mrs Sharon Dean (Headteacher)
- Mr Jason Haslam (Deputy Head Teacher and KS2 Lead)
Deputy Safeguarding Officer
- Mrs Paula Perry (KS1 Lead / EYFS Teacher)
