Summary of Child Protection Information for Visitors and Volunteers

At Ladypool, we will support all children by:
Making it a caring, safe and positive environment
Encouraging self-esteem and self-assertiveness
Effectively tackling bullying and harassment
- Promoting British Values
We recognise that some children may be dealing with individual challenges and can be exposed to risks. All staff are here to help support them through these times and work together to help resolve the issue and concerns.
At Ladypool Primary School in order to protect our children, we aim to:
Create an atmosphere where all our children feel secure, valued and listened to
Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse
Respond quickly, appropriately and effectively to cases of concern.
If you have a concern that a child is being harmed, is at risk of harm, or you receive a disclosure (intentionally or unintentionally) you must contact the staff member as quickly as possible.
DSL names: Mrs Huda Ali Aslam (Head Teacher)

Everyone working with our children, their parents and carers should be aware that:
Their role is to listen and note carefully any observations which could indicate abuse

They should involve the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) immediately
If the DSL is not available the Deputy DSL should be contacted or then the Office.
Disclosure of abuse or harm from children may be made at any time
If anything worries you or concerns you, report it straight away
