Local Support

Safeguarding information at Barming Primary School:

 

All the Governors and staff at Barming Primary School share an objective to help keep the children safe by contributing to:

 

  • Providing a safe environment for them to learn.
  • Identifying children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm and taking appropriate action, with the aim of making sure that they are kept safe both at home and in the education setting.

 

To achieve this objective, we:

 

  • Aim to prevent unsuitable people from working with the children.
  • Promote safe practice and challenge any poor or unsafe practice.
  • Identify instances where there are grounds for concern about a child’s welfare and initiate or take appropriate action to keep them safe.
  • Contribute to effective partnership working between all those involved in providing services for our children.

 

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss Rootes (Director of School Improvement).

 

Deputy Leads are - Mr Laker (Head of School) , Mrs Rathbone (Key Stage Leader), Mrs Stere (Inclusion Manager) and Mrs Darby (FLO).

 

The Safeguarding / Child Protection and Internet Safety named Governor is now Paul Davis.
