Safeguarding Information

 

Yew Tree Primary School is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care.

 

Our school will support all children by:

  1. Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school

  2. Encouraging self-esteem and self-assertiveness

  3. Effectively tackling bullying and harassment

  4. Promoting all aspects of the Equality Act 2010

 

We have an expectation that all staff and visitors to our school will behave in a way which ensures our children are safeguarded at all times. This expectation involves a duty for any safeguarding concerns to be reported.

 

If you are concerned about the welfare of any child or vulnerable adult then please discuss this with the DESIGNATED SAFEGUARDING LEAD (DSL):

Sally Roberts: 01922 626926

 

or the DEPUTY DSLs:

 

Rachel Hawkins

Rachel Sherwood

Sharon Fry

Tamsie McLean

Rebecca Woodhams

 

Our Safeguarding Governor is Craig Dorham.

 

Information from Sandwell Council about what to do if you think a child is at risk is available by clicking here.

 

If you think a child is in immediate danger then you should contact the police 999

or Sandwell Council Children's Social Care Team:

0121 569 3100

 

If children are unhappy they can speak to

Childline: 0800 1111 or NSPCC Helpline: 0808 800 5000

 

 

Everyone working with our children, their parents and carers should be aware

  • Their role is to listen and note carefully any observations which could indicate abuse.

  • They should not attempt to investigate once the initial concern is raised

  • They should involve the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) immediately

  • If the DSL is not available the Head or a Deputy DSL should be contacted.

  • Disclosures of abuse or harm from children may be made at any time.

  • If there are any concerns about a member of staff, this must be shared with the Head Teacher and not the DSL.

     

If anything worries you or concerns you, away.

 

“Yew Tree Primary School is committed to ensuring equality for all regardless of any differences including age, disabilities, gender, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation.”
