Safeguarding & Child Protection

The welfare and safety of children who attend our school is our paramount concern. We promote the health, well-being and safety of the pupils in all we do.

Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.

As stipulated by the Children Act (1989), the Education Act (2002) and the Protection of Children Act (2001), the staff at Wheatlands Primary School have a duty to report any concerns that they may have that any child may be at risk from significant harm or may be suffering significant harm, particularly as a consequence of possible abuse.

All adults working with or on behalf of children have a responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

We are a listening school and will always take the time to listen to our pupils and parents and carers.

All staff at Wheatlands Primary School undergo a thorough safer recruitment and vetting process. We have a Safeguarding Team which consists of:

  • Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs S Pyle (Head Teacher)
  • Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs J Simpson
  • Designated Safeguarding Governor: Mr David Wimble
