Safeguarding for Parents

13th October 2017

Throckley Primary is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We are emailing to you today a document called ‘Safeguarding for Parents’ that explains how we safeguard children in Throckley Primary School.   This document is also available from the ’Information’ section of our website. We have three Designated Persons in our school:  Mrs Stuart is the Designated Lead Person and Mr Kidger (Deputy Head Teacher) and Lynne Cunningham (Welfare Officer) are also Designated Persons. 

The document explains how to report any concerns that you may have about a child’s welfare.  It also gives helpful tips for internet/mobile safety and tells you how to recognise signs of child abuse or bullying.  If you have any questions about this information or if you would like to discuss any  concerns, please contact the school office and ask to speak to one of the designated persons.
