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:
Shelley Desborough – Lead designated person, Headteacher
Annie Blyth – SENCO
Beth Slater - Assistant Headteacher
Sue Phillips - Head of LKS2, Skylark Class Teacher
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.
