Safeguarding & Child Protection

Safeguarding & Child Protection

Our top priority is that all children are safe and secure. Our 'Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy' and associated practices (below) ensure that this is so.

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.

Policies & Practices

Below are the Department for Education's 'Keeping children safe in education'  document and the school's policy for Safeguarding and Child Protection (plus supporting information contained in several appendices).

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.
