Keeping Your Child Safe
In accordance with the Education Act 2002 and guidance set out in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’, New Moston Primary School will work in partnership with other organisations where appropriate to identify any concerns about child welfare and take action to address them.
New Moston’s Child Protection and Safeguarding policy - linked to at the bottom of this page - has been developed to ensure that all adults in New Moston Primary School are working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. The policy has been ratified by the Governing Body and is reviewed annually.
Our policy describes the management systems and arrangements in place to create and maintain a safe learning environment for all our children, young people and staff. It identifies actions that should be taken to redress any concerns about child welfare.
The Headteacher or, in their absence, the authorised member of staff, the deputy headteacher has the ultimate responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people goes beyond implementing basic child protection procedures. It is an integral part of all activities and functions of New Moston Primary School.
The policy describes the ethos that New Moston Primary School aims to create and how we work with pupils, parents and other agencies in order to safeguard our pupils.
If you are concerned about any child's safety and well being or have any questions regarding the school's safeguarding approach please contact Miss J Maynard, who is our Designated Safeguarding Lead, or in her absence ask to speak to a member of the safeguarding and pastoral team:-
- Miss J Maynard - Head Teacher
- Mr R Kinch- Assistant Head Teacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead
- Mrs K Silk - Parental Support Advisor
- Miss L McGrath - Learning Mentor
- Mrs K Sayle - Attendance Lead
Safeguarding Governor - Mr C Heatley
