Trowse Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the policies section on our website.
The child’s welfare is of paramount importance. Our school will establish and maintain an ethos where pupils feel secure, are encouraged to talk, are listened to and are safe. Children at our school will be able to talk freely to any member of staff at our school if they are worried or concerned about something.
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 about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's 'Prevent' Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
We are a member of 'Operation Encompass', a system whereby the school is notified by the police, by 8am the following morning, if there has been a domestic incident attended by an officer and the children come to this school.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Stuart Odell (Headteacher). Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Miss Lucy Bonham (Class 1) and Mrs Sonia Rush (Class 2). The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school is Karen Fox.
