Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children.
To ensure we fulfil this responsibility at Gamlingay Village Primary, all professionals are trained to ensure their approach is child-centred; what is in the best interest of the child at all times. No single professional can have a full picture of a child’s needs and circumstances. If children and families are to receive the right help at the right time everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns and the sharing of information, on a 'need to know' basis. The Safeguarding team will ensure the information is collated and dealt with appropriately.
The Safeguarding team at Gamlingay Village Primary is:
Dawn Henry - Lead Designated Person Head Teacher
Shelley Desborough – Executive Headteacher
Annie Blyth – SENCO
Hannah Leete - Senior Administrator
Sue Phillips - Skylark Class Teacher
Beth Slater - Assistant Headteacher
In an increasingly digital world it’s important that our students, parents and carers feel that their information is protected and safe. This is why the Trust has a robust Data Protection Policy, which can be viewed here.
