Child Protection and Safeguarding
Our designated teacher for Child Protection is Mrs Victoria Jackson. She is the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
Should you have a concern she can be contacted at school.
In her absence any concerns should be made to the Headteacher Mrs.Sue.Thackray
Mrs Debbie Sutton is the nominated governor responsible for ensuring that our child protection policy and procedures are carried out.
All staff in school have undertaken the Safeguarding Children Awareness and Neglect Core Module and Safeguarding in Education. Some members of the staff have also done the Home Office Prevent training.
Designated Safeguarding Lead
At Driffield CE Infant school, we recognise that your child is our responsibility and concern. We want to work in partnership with you, and discuss with you, any concerns we may have or that you may have.
It is a priority to inform and involve you at every stage in your child’s time at the school.
Since the first priority is your child’s welfare, there may be rare occasions when our concern about your child means that we have to consult other agencies even before we contact you.
The ER Safeguarding Children Partnership has laid down the procedures we follow, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all.
If you want to know more about our procedures or the policy, please speak to the Headteacher, the Designated Safeguarding Lead or your child’s class teacher. Or Debbie Sutton who is the Governor with responsibility for Child Protection and Safeguarding.
