Longlands Primary School and Nursery is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We recognise that keeping children and young people safe is paramount. The whole School community is expected to share this commitment.
All staff are expected and encouraged to disclose and record any concerns without any fear of any recourse or consequences to them for their actions in doing so. Any concerns relating to Safeguarding Children must be reported to the Designated Safeguarding Person (DSP) at the earliest possible opportunity.
Lee-Ann Britten is the Designated Safeguarding Person (DSP) for the whole school, assisted by the Deputy DSPs, Donna Brown and Ashleigh Calver. They are fully responsible for liaising with the local statutory children’s agencies, as appropriate. The Head is also responsible for ensuring that staff members have regular and appropriate training pertaining to Safeguarding Children.

The Governing Body member for Safeguarding, Mr Mrs Emma Breckenridge, also participates actively in promoting and upholding good practice in terms of the health, welfare and safety of the children in attendance at the school.
Safeguarding is EVERYONE’s responsibility!
