Trull CE VA Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We at Trull Church of England VA Primary School take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. This means that we have ensured that everyone working in the school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with young people. It also means that we have a staff member who is specifically trained and nominated as the Designated Child Protection Lead and we also have a Designated Safeguarding Team.
Part of our legal duty to safeguard learners may also include the need to consult with and take advice from other agencies such as the Police or Social Services should the need arise. By working closely with everyone concerned, we firmly believe that we will continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our learners.
If you are concerned about a child’s welfare or worried they are being abused please contact one of the safeguarding team in school. Alternatively you can make direct contact with the Local Authority via the link below.
There have been many reports in the media recently of young people being targeted by adults and peers who hold extreme views that advocate violence. Some young people have been persuaded to leave the country in secret and against the wishes of their family, putting themselves in extreme danger as a result.
The government has launched a website for parents and schools ‘Educate Against Hate’ www.educateagainsthate.com which provides useful information about radicalisation and extremism.
If you have any concerns please talk to your child’s teacher or to Mr Bottomley, our Safeguarding Lead.
