Safeguarding

The school endorses a statement of principles contained within the first chapter of Working Together to Safeguard Children: a guide to interagency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children 2018

We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff, volunteers and governors, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm, and that a child centred, context driven approach is fundamental to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of every child. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils. We understand that children may be vulnerable to neglect and abuse or exploitation from within their family and from individuals they come across in their day-to-day lives. Whatever the form of abuse or neglect, practitioners will always put the needs of children first when determining what action to take. 

The Designated Safeguarding Lead for the Prestbury Federation is Mr Matt Fletcher, Executive Head Teacher

The Deputy Safeguarding Leads for the Federation are Mrs Judith Manns at the Infant School and Mrs Alison Hopton at the Junior School

The SENDCo with Safeguarding responsibility is Mrs Susie Ewles

The Governor with Safeguarding responsibility across the Federation is Mrs Ruth Rudge
