Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility
At St Peter’s we recognise that children have a fundamental right to learn in a safe environment and to be protected from harm. Young people are less likely to learn effectively and go on to lead positive and independent lives if they are not kept healthy and safe.
St Peter’s is committed to providing an environment which is safe and where the welfare of each child is of paramount importance. This includes a commitment to ensuring that all pupils feel confident that any concerns they may have will be listened to and acted upon.
Parents and carers also play a role in safeguarding children in their community. If you have any concerns, no matter how small, you should report them to someone who you trust will listen. The school is required to have a designated child protection officer for this purpose. Parents and children should speak to the safeguarding officer if they have any concerns about a child or staff member.
Our Designated Safeguarding lead (DSL) is Ms Sam Adcock (Headteacher)
Deputy DSL’s are Joanna Jordan (Deputy), Hattie Friedman (SENCO & Inclusion Lead).
Our DSL link Governor is Louise Macho
