Sacred Heart Primary School's Safeguarding Policy is available for all parents via the KS2 or KS1 school offices. All staff, volunteers and visitors have a responsibility to take prompt action if they are concerned about the welfare of a child and all concerns about the health and safety of a child are taken seriously. The Designated Senior Member of Staff for Child Protection is Mrs. Joan Cullen.
The school has a legal duty to assist social care with child protection enquiries. In most cases parents and carers will be informed if a referral is made to Social Services or any other agency unless it is believed that to do so would put the child at risk.
A copy of Sacred Heart Primary's Safeguarding Policy is available in the Policy Document section of this website.
