Nonsuch Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding its children and staff and promoting the welfare of its children.
Safeguarding is summarised as:
We ensure our staff, including volunteers, are trained to effectively support our community, working closely with external safeguarding agencies. We reflect on our own practices constantly and rigorously.
We also ensure that we:
All adults must protect children from harm and abuse and be aware that any child may be at risk.
Everyone (including parents and carers) has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our children. Caroline Piper is the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead and should be contacted (via the office) immediately with any concerns. Rachel Evans acts in this role in her absence.

What to do if you are worried about a child
If you feel that a child is in immediate danger, you must call 999 and report your concerns to the police.
Ring 101 if you feel the police need to be made aware of any concerns regarding a child.
If you have concerns about a child's safety and wellbeing, you can use the online form to tell the NSPCC helpline. One of their advisors will read it within 24 hours and decide what action needs to be taken.
You can contact the Helpline anonymously if you do not want to tell them who you are. However, it's really helpful to have your name and contact details, as they may need to contact you for more information in order to protect the child or children that you are concerned about.
