Safeguarding and Child Protection is an integral part of life at Edgebury. This is everyone's responsibility and there are key people and organisations that can help if you have a concern about a child whether in school or in the wider world.
At Edgebury Primary the designated staff for Safeguarding and Child Protection are:
Mrs J Box, Designated Safeguarding Lead
Ms. H D'Arcy, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mrs. C Pester, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Miss N Johnson, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Mr J Dixon , Designated Governor for Safeguarding
The school recognises its responsibilities and duties to report Child Protection concerns to the social work service within Children’s Specialist Services and to assist Children’s Specialist Services in Child Protection enquiries and in supporting Children in Need. This policy is in line with the London Child Protection Procedures 2010 (4th edition), Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015 and Keeping Children Safe In Education 2020.
The school will raise Child Protection concerns with parents/carers at the earliest appropriate opportunity, and work in partnership with them and other agencies to improve outcomes. The school will ensure that all staff are provided with the appropriate training in Child Protection issues, as recommended in the guidance. In particular designated members of staff will be released to attend the necessary enhanced training courses to enable them to carry out their role effectively.
If you have concerns about a child you can talk to the school, contact Childline (0800 1111 www.childline.org.uk), the NSPCC (0808 800 5000 www.nspcc.org.uk) or Bromley Safeguarding on 020 8464 3333.
