At Milton Hall Primary School and Nursery, Safeguarding and Child Protection is paramount and we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this dedication.
We believe that all pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying the processes to avert and alleviate any such problems. All staff are trained annually on Safeguarding procedures and are made aware of important documentation including the School's Safeguarding Policy and 'Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2019'. The training also includes raising awareness of and providing information about 'A Child Missing in Education, Child Sexual Exploitation and Female Genital Mutilation'. We actively support the Government's PREVENT agenda to counter radicalisation and extremism.
Milton Hall aims to ensure that:
Milton Hall believes that Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and as such, our school aims to create the safest environment within which every pupil has the opportunity to strive and reach their full potential. We recognise the importance of us ensuring our pupils know how to seek support, feel that they will be listened to and appropriate action taken. Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm and that we all feel safe in our environment.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns are discussed with a parent/carer first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Our Designated Lead for Safeguarding is Mrs Laura Blackaby, Deputy Designated Leads are Mr Andy Douglas and Mr Tom Spence, Designated Safeguarding Governor is Mr Dave Taylor.
