Safeguarding at Healing Primary School

Healing Primary School recognises its moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of our children. We are alert to signs of abuse and neglect, and we follow our procedures and policies to ensure that our children receive effective support and protection.

We keep children safe by:

  • Having an up to date Safeguarding and Child Protection policy.
  • Have two identified members of staff, and one identified Governor, who have responsibility for safeguarding.
  • Completing the checking procedures necessary to ensure all staff have the suitability to work with children and young people.
  • Having an open-door policy where concerns can be shared in confidence.
  • Ensuring all our staff have up to date safeguarding and child protection training.
  • Sharing information with appropriate agencies if we have concerns.

What to do if you have a concern about a child or young person

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OR WELLBEING OF ANY CHILD YOU KNOW, YOU SHOULD ACT WITHOUT DELAY.

If you have a concern about a child or young person, you can contact:

  • Our Safeguarding Team
  • Contact the FAPP team (Family First Access Point) on 01474 326292
  • Report a concern online via North East Linconlshire’s Local Safeguarding Children Board website here.
  • Contact the police on 101, or 999 if in an emergency

 

You should report any concerns, however small they may seem, as soon as you possibly can.  Everyone has a responsibility to keep children safe from harm.  Many people worry that their concerns or suspicions may be wrong, that they are interfering unnecessarily, or that someone else might report it.  Our advice would be to report in any case to the school or to the FAPP team, where they can give advice and the professionals can process the information you have.
