Governors and all staff at Spon Gate Primary School are committed to safeguarding and child protection and recognise that it is everyone’s responsibility to keep children safe from harm.
The Designated Safeguarding lead is Jamie Wingrove, Headteacher. The deputy Designated Safeguarding lead is Lynne Burns, Deputy Headteacher.
Each of the school’s learning mentors is trained to undertake CAF (Family Support work). Any parents who would like support should speak with Mr Wingrove to arrange a meeting.
All members of staff have a duty to respond to any safeguarding or child protection concerns. Where possible, parents will be informed of any concern. However, there may be circumstances where school staff need to contact other agencies, including Social Care, without first notifying parents. This is a legal obligation.
