"The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding. Almost all of the parents and carers who expressed a view say that their children are safe and well looked after. Very effective steps are taken to care for those pupils whose circumstances mean they are potentially vulnerable." Ofsted March 2014
At Barnes Farm Infant School we are fully committed to our statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our pupils. We strive to ensure that all our children are safe in school, at home, online and in the community, and expect everyone working with us to take a full and active part in protecting them from harm.
We aim to foster a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others.
Keeping children safe is at the forefront of everything that we do as a school and underpins all policies and procedures. Please see the Safeguarding link on the 'Policies' page for copies of all our safeguarding and child protection policies.
Our Safeguarding policy gives detailed information about how we work to keep our children safe at school. This has been written with reference to the DFE document ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (September 2021).
We also have a number of additional policies which contribute to the overall safeguarding of our children.
Our policies apply to all staff, parents, governors, volunteers and visitors working within our school.
If you are ever concerned about any child (or any adult coming into contact with children) please report your concerns to:
Designated Safeguarding Lead - Mrs Zanya Farmer
Safeguarding Deputy - Mrs Kirsty Robinson
Safeguarding Deputy - Mrs Pam Webb
All three Designated Safeguarding Leads have annual Level 3 Safeguarding Update Training.
Our Governor with Safeguarding Responsibility is
Mrs Katie Corbett
