Safeguarding

Safeguarding children is a priority at Wilmslow Grange Primary and Nursery school.

All adults within our school have a responsibility for Safeguarding.

Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Mrs Lynette Lawson (Deputy Headeacher)

Deputy Safeguarding Officer is: Mr Mark Unwin (Headteacher)

School Counsellor is: Mrs Jane Collins

All adults named above have completed Intermediate Level 2 safeguarding training, led by the Local Safeguarding Children Board, as well as specialist Level 3 training provided by the Cheshire East Safeguarding Children In Education Service.

All staff have completed Basic Awareness Training, which was completed in January 2016 and all copies of staff certificates are held within school. During staff meetings the staff complete a scenario to ensure they understand how to deal with differing situations appropriately. Mrs Lawson regularly provides Safeguarding updates and additional training when necessary.

Named Governor responsible for Safeguarding is: Mrs Cynthia Samson

All staff, governors, students (16+) and volunteers are required to undertake a DBS check and all DBS details are kept in a Single Central Record (SCR) within the main office.

All adults in school are required to wear a Wilmslow Grange Identification Badge, and must sign in at the school office where they will be given the appropriate school badge with the safeguarding procedures attached.

All staff recruitment panels include a person who has completed appropriate ‘Safer Recruitment In Education’ training.

The Safeguarding policy (and its related policies) form a central part of the new staff induction process. All of the policies are reviewed annually or when new information is provided. These policies are available to view on the policies page.

We believe that it is important to make children and young people aware of behaviour towards them that is not acceptable. Our school assemblies, half termly values and PSHCE curriculum supports children in recognising when their personal safety is being compromised. The school also signposts access to support for pupils by displaying Childline posters and contact telephone numbers within the building as well as on the Parent’s board on the playground.
