Child Protection

Child Protection

Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils.  In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, including online bullying and prejudice-based bullying, the Designated Teacher/Headteacher has no alternative but to follow Sefton’s Child Protection Procedures and inform Social Services of their concern.  Parents will be informed of concerns and advise or direction received from Social Services.  Our named Designated Teacher is Mr I Lunt.  (Mrs L Nelson second designated person).

 

Operation Encompass 
 I am writing to let you know about a new project that all schools in Sefton will be participating in. The project, called Operation Encompass, is being run in partnership with Merseyside Police. The project, which commences on 6 October 2014, aims to support children who are affected by domestic abuse. Following a domestic abuse incident attended by Merseyside Police, at which children from our school were present, Merseyside Police will notify us early the next morning and prior to the start of the school day. Each school has a member of staff (key adult) who is trained to liaise with the police, when required, whilst ensuring support is available to the child. We are committed to providing the best possible care and support for our pupils. In the meantime, if you would like to speak to someone further about the project or require further information, please do not hesitate to Mr I Lunt
