Safeguarding Statement

Cavendish Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the social, physical and emotional well-being of all of our pupils. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment. 


We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed on our website. The school will ensure that all staff are provided with the appropriate training in Child Protection issues and will follow Department for Education guidance, including ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016’.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.


Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Anna Coleman (Deputy Head for Inclusion). Our Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Mr Simon Shand (Deputy Head for Teaching and Learning).
