Safeguarding at Belton All Saints C of E Primary School is given top priority.  All adults in our school have a responsibility for Safeguarding our Children.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (and Child Protection Co-ordinator) is Mrs Goulthorpe (Executive Headteacher). The Designated Safeguarding Deputy is Mrs Alcock and Mrs Bradley is Safeguarding officer. These staff have completed Level 3 Safeguarding Training, led by the LSCB (Local Safeguarding Children Board) and complete further training every year. Mrs Bradley is also our Pastoral Manager.

All staff (teachers, teaching assistants, midday assistants, admin staff and the site manager) have completed Basic Awareness of Safeguarding Training. Regular updates, reviews of practice take place.

Governors take a colliegate responsibility towards Safeguarding. An open meeting is held each term for all Governors to discuss issues around safeguarding our pupils.

All staff recruitment panels include at least one person who has completed appropriate 'Safer Recruitment in Education' training.

All adults (staff and visitors) in school are required to sign in at the school office and to wear a visitor badge when on site.

All staff, governors, students and volunteers undertake a DBS check and staff DBS details are kept in a Single Central Record in school.

The Safeguarding Policy (and related policies) form a central part of the Staff Induction process, and all of these policies are reviewed annually. (These policies can be downloaded from the policy page of this website or hard copies are available, upon request, from the office)

We believe that it is important to make children and young people aware of behaviour towards them that is not acceptable, and our recently updated PSHE curriculum supports children in recognising when their personal safety is being compromised. The school has a range of systems to support pupils including worry boxes, pupils identifying a named adult in school via the Home:School contract and a buddy system, we also signposts access to support for pupils, by displaying Childline posters.

We are committed to multi-agency working, in order to ensure the best possible outcomes for all of the pupils within our school and engage with the Early Help system to support pupils and their families.

Should parents or visitors to our school have any concerns or enquiries about safeguarding issues please contact the school office to speak to the Headteacher, Mrs Goulthorpe, the Deputy Headteacher Mts Alcock or our Pastoral Manager Mrs Bradley. If you have concerns about the safety of a child you can also contact children services on 01724 296500.
