Fynamore Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We fulfil our local and national responsibilities as laid out in the following key documents:
Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018);
Keeping Children Safe in Education (2019);
The Procedures of the Safeguarding Vulnerable People Partnership (formerly WSCB).
In line with our safeguarding policy and statutory guidance we have clear procedures in school for responding to any concerns about a child's safety or wellbeing.
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Kate Hurst
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Natasha Burch and Mrs Paula Mitchard
Safeguarding Governor: Mrs Jacqui Radford
If you are concerned about a child's welfare or worried they are being abused please contact one of the safeguarding team at school. Alternatively you can make direct contact with the Local Authority by clicking here.
Our school is secure during the day, so all visitors are asked access the school site by pressing the buzzer for the intercom by the main car park gate. Please then report immediately to the School Office. Please be mindful that for everybody's safety, identification procedures will be carried out at the School Office.
All members of staff are vetted against national safeguarding procedures before being allowed to work in school. At least one member of every interview panel has undertaken safer recruitment training to ensure that best practices and all necessary checks are carried out.
Supply staff, Volunteers, regular parent volunteers, outside agency staff and placement students will also be required to apply for and supply their DBS, or in the case of an agency or Educational Establishment, a letter of compliance.
