At Spring Meadow keeping every child safe is essential and every adult in our school takes their responsibility to report any concerns very seriously at all times. All staff, volunteers, including the Governing body, undertake annual safeguarding training to support our rigorous approaches to ensuring we keep our children safe. Annette Blewett, Head Teacher is the Designated Safeguarding Lead for the school. The Deputy Head and the Family Support worker are Designated Persons who support the ‘keeping children safe in education’ agenda, working in partnership with the Head Teacher.
Every member of staff is vigilant at all times and provide ‘logs of concern’ to the Designated Safeguarding Lead if they are concerned about a child’s safety. The Head Teacher meets all parents or carers when a log of concern has been completed. Some concerns are resolved simply, but others require further support from social care. The ‘needs of the child’ are paramount and immediate action is taken to keep a child safe. Parents are kept informed at all times, unless doing so may cause harm to come to the child. If you wish to discuss the school systems and procedures please contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead.

The behaviour and the anti-bullying policy are also attached for you to view, along with the Government document Keeping Children Safe in Education, which was up-dated September 2018.
