Where staff have reason to suspect that a child may be the subject of abuse, they must immediately inform our Designated Safeguarding Lead or Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, who will take the action necessary.  Where both these members of staff are unavailable, staff must inform the Headteacher.

Designated Safeguarding Lead Mr G Walters, Assistant Headteacher (Pastoral)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead Miss L Gregg, Head of Year 

Headteacher Mrs K Canham, Headteacher

Haygrove School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.

Safeguarding Key Messages

  • Child abuse can affect any child and may be carried out by anyone.  It is usually carried out by someone well known to the child.
  • Safeguarding is everybody's responsibility.
  • Abuse has a profound emotional and/or physical effect on not only the child, but also their families and the wider community.
  • All adults who work with children need to know what their responsibilities are.
  • Some groups of children seem to have an increased risk of abuse, for example disabled children, or children living in stressful, violent or chaotic situations.
  • The prevalence of abuse (most research suggests 10% of children are affected).

So remember:

  1. Recognise - be alert to the signs of abuse.
  2. Respond - make an appropriate approach or response to the child.
  3. Report - tell an agency responsible for the protection of children (Police/Health/Children's social Care/Education).
  4. Record - write down your concerns, sign and date them.  They may provide evidence at a later stage.

"Pupils feel safe and are safe and well looked after. Pupils are clear about what they need to do to keep themselves safe and what to do if they have any concerns." OFSTED 2016
