Safeguarding Statement

Success & Achievement For Everyone

Safeguarding Children at The Beacon

This school believes that it is always unacceptable for a child to experience abuse of any kind. We recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children.

We will provide staff and volunteers with guidance to follow when they suspect a child may be experiencing abuse or at risk of harm. We will work co-operatively with other agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first – unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

  • The Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection is Mrs Chatwin/Mrs Wynne
  • The Deputy Designated Person for child protection is Mrs Hatton
  • The Governor with responsibility for child protection is Mrs Stokes
  • We will review our policy and procedures on an annual basis
