At Barrington C of E Primary School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.


We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).


We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute ot our safeguarding commitment. The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Cambridgeshire Safeguarding Team and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.


We actively support the Government Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.


The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Gill Davies (Head Teacher).


The Additional Safeguarding Leads are Andrea Avant and Clair Hayes (Senior Teachers).


The Designated Teacher for Looked After Children and Pupil Premium Champion is Gill Davies.


The governor with responsibility for safeguarding is Sharon Isaacs.


The Child Protection Policy is available on the policies page of this website.
