Safeguarding & Child Protection

Safeguarding & Child Protection

Our first priority is that all children are safe. Our 'Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy' (below) ensures that this is so.


Who to talk to

If you have a child protection concern you should talk to Mrs. Vousden, our head teacher, or Miss Cope, our deputy 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 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).

Domestic Violence

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.
