‘Together We Achieve More’

Safeguarding & Child Protection


Our top priority is that all children are safe and secure. Our safeguarding policy and routines (below) ensure that this is so.

Child Protection

We fully understand and accept our responsibility to help protect children at risk of significant harm. Our Child Protection policy and routines (below) explain how we do this. This includes reference to the school's responsibilities to prevent children from becoming radicalised (as part of the government's 'Prevent' strategy).

Who to talk to

If you have a child protection concern you should talk directly, and without delay, to Mr. Heath, our head teacher. Alternatively you can speak to the school's Chair of Governors (contact via the school office).

Online Safety

We've a separate page with information about staying safe online:


Our full policies cover a lot. If you want an overview of safeguarding and child protection in our school please read the information sheets below.

Policies & Procedures

Below are the school's detailed policies for Safeguarding and Child Protection.

Domestic Violence: ENCOMPASS

Nursteed School is part of a project run jointly by schools and Wiltshire Police: ENCOMPASS.

If a child is involved in, affected by or exposed to an incident of domestic abuse the school will be notified by the next school day. The head teacher, who is also the school's designated safeguarding lead, will be informed in confidence so that he can consider making provision for any possible difficulties.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils. We believe this arrangement will be beneficial for all those involved.

Roles and Responsibilities

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mr. T. Heath (head teacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mr. D. Crossman (deputy head teacher)

Nominated Governor for Child Protection: Mr. J. Parker (chair of governors)
