Safeguarding

St Mary’s School is highly committed to safeguarding all the children and adults who are in our care. The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Lee Duffy (Headteacher), and the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Oliver Knight (Interim Deputy Headteacher).

Please read our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy: Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy 2018 Approved

We follow the DfE guidance, Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2019): Keeping_Children_Safe_in_Education 2019

It is extremely important that children also stay safe online. Please read our Online Safety Policy: Online safety policy 2018 (this policy is in process of being updated)

Please note that mobile phones and cameras are not allowed in our Early Years Foundation Stage or in classrooms. Thank you.

If you have any concerns about a safeguarding issue, please see Mr Duffy or Mr Knight  as soon as you can. If your concern is about a member of staff, please see Mr Duffy straightaway. If your concern is about the Headteacher, please contact Sarah Bedford, the school’s Chair of Governors.
