Safeguarding is about ensuring everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our child protection policy, which can be viewed in the policies section of our website. The health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority.
We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils. All school staff have received training in child protection. Children at Shirley Heath are aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. We actively support the government’s Prevent agenda.
Shirley Heath’s Designated Safeguarding Leads are:
Kara Evans: Headteacher
Matthew Taylor: Deputy Headteacher
Geraldine Mills: Pastoral Manager
Amy Neale: Kids’ Club Manager
