Woolhampton CE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. It is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that children in our school are kept safe from harm.
The Children Act 1989 requires the school to follow the West Berkshire Child Protection Procedure and aim to work together with other agencies that support children and families.
We are required to be watchful for signs and symptoms of physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect.
We should all be aware that in the case of urgent or repeated incidents the school is obliged to discuss them with, or refer them to, other agencies. The Headteacher is the designated Child Protection Officer and there is a designated governor with responsibility for the implementation of these procedures.
