The Governors and staff at Henry Maynard Primary fully recognise the contribution we all make to safeguarding children. All staff and Governors believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment, which promotes the social, physical and moral development of each individual child. We are committed to maintaining an ethos where children feel secure and are encouraged to talk and are always listened to.
We take Safeguarding of children and Child Protection extremely seriously.
The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with the London Child Protection procedures).
The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents.
The school’s Safeguarding Policy (including child protection) is available in the Policies section of this website, along with our e-Safety Policy.
Should you have any concerns, the Safeguarding Officers (DSL) for 2016/2017 are:
Mrs L Adair (Headteacher), Mrs N Hillman (Inclusion Assistant Head) and Miss C. Hunton (FS and Year 1 Phase Leader).
Keeping children safe is our key priority.
All visitors must access the school via the main entrance and sign in at the school office where they will be issued with a visitor badge and asked to sign a Safeguarding declaration.
