Who is responsible for Safeguarding in the School?
At Greatstone Primary School, everyone is responsible for ensuring and maintaining the high standards of pupil behaviour, safety and welfare that we have worked so hard to achieve. We believe that children have the right to learn in a safe, caring and supportive environment, which includes being protected from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for any signs of children in distress and confident about applying our safeguarding procedures.
Overall responsibility for safeguarding in our school is led by the Head of School (Jaclyn Kay) who is a trained and experienced Designated Safeguarding Leader (DSL). Fiona Roberts (Deputy Headteacher) and Matt Rawling (Exec Headteacher) are also a qualified DSLs. Within our nursery, Nadia Leech is our nursery DSL’s.
