The school’s Designated Lead for Child Protection is Ms Suzanne Ulyett, Headteacher. There are two additional designated members of staff for child protection in school: Mrs. Debbie Feehan, Deputy Headteacher and Mrs Sylvia Klays, Early Years Lead
St Aelred’s Primary School fully recognises its responsibilities for child protection and sees the protection of the children in its care as one of its major priorities and responsibilities.Child Protection and Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility in school.
The school recognises its legal duty to work in partnership with other agencies under the direction of the local Safeguarding Children’s Board, in protecting children from significant harm and responding to abuse.
We recognise that because of the day to day contact with children, members of our school staff are well placed to observe the outward signs of abuse.
Our policy applies to all adults working in our school.
