The Designated Officers for Child Protection are Diana Choudhury, Dawn Burton and Dave Marks. John Dibdin, head teacher at Geoffrey Field, is also part of the safeguarding team.
Aims and Objectives
The school aims to focus on the needs of the child, but also seeks to understand their family context as part of its responsibility for pastoral care. The school encourages parents and children to talk freely about any concerns or difficulties they may be facing and to see the school as a resource and place of safety.
Children’s worries and fears are taken seriously. Staff cannot guarantee confidentiality if they feel that an onward referral is required in order to safeguard a child’s welfare, however, unless it puts the child at further risk, the school will inform parents prior to any referral.
If the school suspects that a child’s physical, sexual or emotional well-being is in danger, action will be taken.
If you have any concerns about a child in term time please come into school and talk to one of the above members of staff.
