Safeguarding statement

Church Lane Primary School and Nursery is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed on our website.

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 about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. 

Our designated safeguarding leads are Mr Callum Clay (Headteacher), Mrs Sophie McCordick (SENCO) and Mr Jason Barratt (Deputy Headteacher).


Useful Information

Keep them safe is a free online learning tool from Pace and Virtual College which has been accessed by more than 29,000 parents and professionals (as of March 2016).

Although the course is aimed at parents, safeguarding professionals will also find this 20-30 minute e-learning training course a valuable source of information to:

  • find out more about child sexual exploitation
  • learn the signs and indicators of when a child might be being exploited
  • understand the impact child sexual exploitation can have on families
  • know what to do if you suspect a child might be at risk of this abuse
