All staff at St Nicholas School are committed to safeguarding our pupils and promoting the welfare of children and expect all visitors and volunteers to share this commitment. This means we have a child protection policy and procedures in place. All staff, supply, volunteers and governors must ensure they are aware of these procedures. Parents and Carers are welcome to read the Child Protection policy on the school’s website or upon request. We follow the Plymouth CAST policy and LSCB Guidance.
Denise Sparkes (Assistant SENCo) is responsible for Child Protection within the school. It is her duty and responsibility to pass on to outside agencies any concerns that a pupil is being harmed or may be at risk of being harmed. This may result in a referral to Children and Young People’s Services.
If you are concerned about a child’s welfare please record your concern and report to a Designated Lead immediately.
If your concerns relate to the actions of a member of staff please report this to the Executive Headteacher, Angela Folland or the Deputy Headteacher, Kelli Reynolds.
If your concerns relate to the actions of the Headteacher please contact our Chair of Governors, Luke Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
