Kiwi Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
The above statement means that we have a safeguarding policy and rigorous safeguarding procedures in place which all staff and volunteers must ensure that they are aware of and follow. The policy can be found on our policies page here. We also make sure that we follow the statutory guidance set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education and Working Together to Safeguard Children.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our children are discussed with parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report one of the people below as soon as possible . If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which could suggest that she/he is a danger to children) then you should report this in the first instance to the Headteacher in confidence (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) - who will consider what action to take.
Our DSLs are:
Headteacher- Mrs L Eatherington- firstname.lastname@example.org
Deputy Headteacher- Mrs N Wright- email@example.com
Resource Base Leader- Mr D Hadyn-Davies
Safeguarding governor- Mrs K Austin -firstname.lastname@example.org
Chair of Governors- Mrs A Bayliss
Kiwi Primary School Early Help Offer
We have a strong culture of safeguarding: children know they are valued and will be listened to. We appreciate the importance of early help in our safeguarding duty, and we aim to recognise families and children who may benefit from early intervention and put this in place in a timely manner. We ensure that our children get the support that they need, at the time that they need it. This keeps them safe and, ultimately, enables them to learn and develop.
