Safe Guarding

Safeguarding

Thurcroft Infants recognise that our moral and statutory responsibility is to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils.
We will endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued.
We will be alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and will follow procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

Our Designated Safeguard Leaders are Mrs Harper and Mrs Stephenson, it is their responsibility for child protection issues in school. Both ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015)’ and ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education (2016)’ require that all schools have a Designated Safeguard Lead in place to deal with child protection concerns.

If you have any concerns about the welfare or safety of children outside of school hours, please use the links below for further information.

We would like to direct you to the NSPCC website which gives parents valuable safeguarding information. The Underwear Rule is a simple way that parents can help keep children safe from abuse – without using scary words.
