Safeguarding Governor

Our safeguarding link governor is the Chair of Governors: Jen Hurley:



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.


We use CPOMS in school to register and share any safeguarding concerns in a secure way which ensures confidentiality and that action is taken where concerns arise.  



We work to develop good relationships with parents and families so that we can have open dialogue and provide or help to seek support for families.



All staff have safeguarding training appropriate to their role in school to enable us to carry out our safeguarding responsibilities well.
