Our School's 'Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer' is Mr Wyatt and the 'Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer' is Ms Faulding. The 'Designated Safeguarding Governor' is Mrs Nazer.
Please note the Safeguarding Team has been updated since some of the Safeguarding Policies have been reviewed.
Here at Coombe Bissett we take every precaution to ensure the safeguarding of children as detailed in the DfE guidelines 'Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2022)'. From our approach to safe recruitment, to our security devices around the school, from our signing in registers and systems, to our health and safety inspection routines, from our curriculum which teaches about stranger danger, RSE, first aid, wellbeing and healthy living to our outside agency visitors, from our professional development training for staff to our Child Protection Policy and procedures.
Everyone is involved in keeping children safe. Our school is a listening school and has a strong safeguarding culture.
Our staff undergo regular and stringent safeguarding training to help them to spot signs in children of neglect and abuse, Peer on Peer abuse, FGM, Child Sexual Exploitation, Radicalisation, County Lines and Criminal Exploitation, Contextual Safeguarding and Extra Familial harm and Private Fostering. KCSiE September 2022 Part 2 has determined the most recent and ongoing safeguarding training for staff. We work closely with parents and outside agencies to provide the very best care for all of our children.
A Child Protection leaflet is issued to all staff, visitors and volunteers and further information is provided in our Child Protection Policy.
All volunteers are required to complete a full DBS.
Contractors are required to have DBS clearance if working unsupervised, otherwise a member of staff will supervise them during their time on the school site.
If you wish to work at Coombe Bissett Primary you will be required to complete a full DBS before application. We will then have regular reviews of your working practice in relation to safeguarding at regular intervals. All staff remain vigilant at all times with regard to all adults working with children.
