Statement regarding Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children

Lady Bankes Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This means that we have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy which is on the 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.

 

 

Keeping children safe is the most important thing we do. All our staff are trained in child protection procedures, and the following teachers take a lead role in safeguarding:

  • Mrs K. Needs- Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Miss S. Reile- Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
  • Mr G. Baines

 

Our governors also keep a close eye on the school's safeguarding procedures. The following governors have received appropriate training:

  • Joanna Wagstaffe
  • Charlotte Moore
  • Sue Midgley
  • Jo Coxwell
