Safeguarding and Child Protection

St. Andrew's Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent, effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.

We follow the procedures set out by our Child Protection Policy and take account of guidance issued by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (in particular Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education 2007).

School Safeguarding and Prevent Team

If you want to know more about our procedures or if there is something you are concerned about regarding a member of our school community, please contact any of the following people who can help.

Ben Arnell – Headteacher, Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent officer ()

Alan Reed – Deputy Head, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Officer ()

Chris Parfitt, Family Support Worker, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Officer ()

Sarah Leaker – SENDCo, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Officer ()

Cause for Concern

Our first priority is of course your child’s welfare and school is required to take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. However there may be occasions when we have reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse. We will ensure that our concerns about a child are discussed with his/her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. In this case we are obliged to follow the Child Protection procedures established by the Northamptonshire Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub.

If you are worried about a child's safety please do not hesitate to contact any of the DSLs at school or contact the MASH team on 0300 126 3000 or visit
