Cranbrook C of E Primary

Safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and requires all staff, parents, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment. 

 

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Mrs Rosie Piper -  Headteacher

We also have a Safeguarding Team of trained staff who can support or help in the absence of Mrs Piper:

Mrs M Salter - FLO

Mrs V French - Inclusion Manager

Our governor for Safeguarding is: Mrs L Atkins

 

We fully recognise our responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the health and well-being of all the children in our care. 

We therefore strive to:

  • Ensure we practice safer recruitment in compliance with the LCSB Standards for Safer Recruitment 2010
  • Raise awareness of safeguarding issues and equip children with the skills needed to keep them safe
  • Implement the Kent  LA procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of abuse
  • Support children who have been abused in accordance with the Kent LA procedures
  • Establish a safe environment in which children can learn and develop
  • Ensure that all staff receive appropriate safeguarding training in compliance with the LCSB Training Strategy, which includes e-safety  

 

Comment from Ofsted report June 2015

'Leaders ensure safeguarding requirements are fully met. Leaders ensure the school site is well maintained and safe. Safeguarding procedures are robust and rigorous checks are carried out on staff when they join the school.''
