Safeguarding

Parents, carers and staff all have the safety and wellbeing of our children at the centre of the decisions they make, both in and out of School. Keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility. Members of the public, as well as staff in helping agencies, can play a vital role in helping to protect children from abuse or neglect.

Whilst the child’s welfare is always the most important consideration, there is also a duty on professionals to work in partnership with parents, to provide support where necessary and to ensure that children remain with their families wherever possible.

If any member of the public thinks a child may be at risk of abuse or neglect, they should contact the local Childrens Services (formerly known as Social Services) or the NSPCC National Helpline.

Staff at Normanby Primary School receive annual Child Protection training.

The School maintains a Single Central Record, which records all the adults who work with children at our school. We also only work with contractors (for example builders) who can meet our requirements regarding safeguarding of pupils.

Mr Faulkner is the Nominated Person for Child Protection; Mr Wood is the Deputy Nominated Person. Mrs Laverick is the Nominated Governor; all can be contacted through school. Additionally Mrs Hall, the Bursar, and Mrs Miller, the Special Needs Leader have attended this training.

The School website hosts details of the relevant Policies. Parents may also wish to visit the NSPCC site below:
