Safeguarding


Our school, like all other organisations that works with children, has a duty to ensure the safety of all pupils during their time at school and in their daily lives. The school works with the Milton Keynes Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) if there are any concerns about the safety or wellbeing of a child. The MASH brings together social services, police and teaching staff to decide how best to help any vulnerable child. 

Our safeguarding duties include ensuring that all staff members are background checked before appointment and that records of this are kept. The school also ensures that staff are trained to look for any signs that a child is at risk and understand and follow agreed procedures to report any incidents of concern.

You can find out more about our policy for safeguarding by looking at our Child Protection Policy in the ‘Policies’ section of this website or alternatively, click here.

To help parents keep their children safe online, we have also adopted an e-Safety Policy which takes into account not only the internet, but other ways in which young people communicate using electronic media, e.g. mobile phones. This supports our teaching of 
e-safety, ensuring that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.

Our children are taught about protective behaviours through a comprehensive PSHE curriculum and through liaison with and visits to the MK Safety Centre.

The designated safeguard lead responsible for child protection is the Headteacher, Mrs Pam McBurnie.
The deputy safeguard lead is the Assistant Headteacher, Miss Claire Evelyn.
