Safeguarding at Boarshaw Primary
All staff, whether paid or voluntary, have a crucial role to play in shaping the lives of children and young people. They have a unique opportunity to interact with children in ways that are both affirming and inspiring. All staff are in a position of trust and have a duty to keep children and young people safe and to protect them from neglect and physical and emotional harm. This duty is in part exercised through the development of respectful, caring and professional relationships between staff and pupils. All staff are familiar with local child protection arrangements and understand their responsibilities in order to safeguard and protect children and young people. All staff will immediately report any concerns regarding child welfare to the Headteacher.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at our school is Jackie Harland. The Link Safeguarding Governor is Lisa Vitler.
Deputy DSL’s in school are Abigail Facchin, Sadia Riaz, Ashleigh Waugh and Nicola Wilson. If a child is worried about something and needs an adult to talk to, these are the people to go to. However all staff at Boarshaw Primary have had the appropriate level of safeguarding training and a pupil can speak to whoever they feel comfortable talking to.
Named Teacher for C4C pupils is Jackie Harland.
Our E-safety Lead is Sadia Riaz. Further detail and links about E-safety can be found on our webpage.
Our safeguarding policy can be found here. In addition to this as a school we also provide Early Help to our families. The Guide for Families document outlines what Early Help is, why a family might need or want Early Help and the types of support which would then be provided.
