Our first priority is that all children are safe. Our 'Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy' (below) ensures that this is so.
If you have a child protection concern you should talk to Mr. Heath, our head teacher, or one of our deputy head teachers. Alternatively you can speak to the school's Chair of Governors (contact via the school office).
Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mr. T. Heath (head teacher)

Mrs. P. Stanley & Miss A. Cope (deputy head teachers)
Nominated Governor for Child Protection
Mr. J. Parker (chair of governors)
Below is the Department for Education's 'Keeping children safe in education' document plus the school's policy for Safeguarding and Child Protection (with supporting information in separate documents).
Nursteed School is part of a project called Encompass, run jointly by schools and Wiltshire Police.
If a child is affected by an incident of domestic abuse we will be notified by the next school day. The head teacher will be informed in confidence so that he can consider making provision for any possible difficulties.
