Mrs Vicki Storey is the school’s Safeguarding Officer.
From time to time the school receives information from a variety of sources (children, parents or other adults) concerned with the protection of an individual child from abuse. This information will be dealt with as confidentially as is possible and made known to the smallest number of staff who need to know.
We deal with such information with sensitivity and care, there are legal responsibilities laid upon the school to report actual allegations to Social Services or the Police, and there are procedures which we are expected to follow if suspicions are passed to us. As adults we accept that it is the safeguarding of the child who may be at some kind of risk which is the most important issue.
If you have an urgent safeguarding concern during school closure, please call the local safeguarding board Central Advice and Duty Team on the following numbers:
Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm - 0151 606 2008
At other times 0151 677 6557
