Safeguarding and Child Protection
Boyne Hill CE Infant & Nursery School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We believe that children have a right to live and learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed here and in the Policies section of our website. This policy is in line with the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019 statutory guidance.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Jane Davies (Head Teacher/SENCo).
We also have three Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads. They are:
Mr Christopher Phillips (Assistant Head Teacher)
Mrs Deborah Firth (Assistant Head Teacher)
Mrs Abi Quinn (Specialist Maths Teacher)
The nominated child protection and safeguarding governor for our school is:
Mrs Jay Wilkinson
