Safeguarding our children is at the core of everything we do at Asquith Primary School.

Children know that there is a strong focus on keeping them safe, and that everyone plays a role in making sure this happens. We have appropriate polices that are embedded in practice. All staff have had Child Protection Training at least every three years. Our named Child Protection Officers update their training as required and meet regularly to discuss school context and on-going concerns. We have strong partnerships with a wide range of agencies and this supports the safeguarding work of the school.


The school fully recognises the contribution it can make in protecting children from harm as well as supporting and promoting the welfare of all children who are registered pupils at our school. The key elements of our policy are prevention, protection and support.

We aim:

  • To ensure that children within our school feel safe at all times
  • To ensure that all stakeholders are safe and feel that they are able to put the welfare of the children first without concern that there will be any negative consequences attached to their actions
  • To ensure that all adults who have contact with children in school have been trained to undertake their safeguarding responsibilities effectively

The safeguarding lead in school is :- Mrs L Blackburn

Designated staff for Child Protection are:-  Mrs T Southward, Mrs R Johnson, Ms J Haley, Mrs J Jeavons, Miss Squires and Mrs J Hill-Pearson

Designated governor for Child Protection is:- Ms Aisling Warr


Statutory guidance states that schools should have in place a number of arrangements as part of their duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

In our school these arrangements include:

  • a culture of observing and listening to children, taking onto account their wishes and feelings
  • statutory safer recruitment practices
  • appropriate training, supervision and support for staff
  • the implementation and regular review of a range of clear policies 
  • action to support whole school and target groups
  • action to prevent recurrence of behaviours or risks identified 
  • key messages to all stakeholders
