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
Deputy Headteacher- Mrs N Wright
Resource Base Leader- Mr D Hadyn-Davies
Safeguarding governor- Mrs K Austin
Chair of Governors- Mrs A Bayliss
As a school we follow safeguarding procedure set out by Wiltshire Safeguarding team alongside taking guidnace from the DFE.
