Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children, their families, and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children.
To ensure we fulfil this responsibility at St Peter’s, all professionals are trained to ensure their approach is child-centred; what is in the best interest of the child at all times. No single professional can have a full picture of a child’s needs and circumstances. If children and families are to receive the right help at the right time, everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns and the sharing of information, on a 'need to know' basis. The safeguarding team will ensure the information is collated and dealt with appropriately.
The following members of staff have key responsibilities for safeguarding and are trained as Designated Safeguading Leads:
Mrs Anni Matthew – Assistant Head Teacher firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Jose Cox – Lead for Safeguarding and Child Protection Prevent Lead email@example.com
Mrs Nicky O’Connell – Safeguarding Officer
