Safeguarding our pupils

Safeguarding our pupils
At Dunalley Primary School the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding obligations.

The Update Annex (January 2021) to Safeguarding Policy can be found here

We are committed to supporting families and providing early help as soon as a need arises. We aim to prevent issues and problems becoming serious and harmful to a child, their family and community.

Mental Health Support Teams in Schools Information for Parents

We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. 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 are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

All of our staff are trained in child protection and receive regular updates and refresher training. Our safeguarding leaders have advanced practitioner qualifications.

Our safeguarding leaders are:

Mrs Alison Godfrey– Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Sam Ashton – Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

Miss Amanda Vine – Deputy Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Sara Byrne – Deputy Safeguarding Lead

If you are concerned about the health, safety or wellbeing of a child, you can talk to or email our designated safeguarding leads on safeguarding@dunalley.gloucs.sch.uk.

Alternatively, you can contact the local authority’s Children and Families Helpdesk on 01452 426565 (during office hours) or email them at childrenshelpdesk@gloucestershire.gov.uk. If you are concerned about the immediate safety of a child, you must phone the police.
