John Betts Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all members of the school community to share this commitment.
The school ensures that the principles identified below, many of which derive from the Children Act 1989, are followed by all staff.
All visitors and volunteers should have a DBS check, which they must present to the school office when visiting or volunteering for the first time, along with some form of photo identification.
If any member of the school community has significant concerns about any child they must make them known to the Designated or Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads without delay.
These concerns may include:
Identifying cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) and Forced Marriage
Further and more detailed information on each of the concerns can be found in the DfE document ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ March 2015
