Primet is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns which they may have about their own safety or the well-being of others. We aim to safeguard and promote the welfare of children by protecting them from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Christopher Holmes (Headteacher)
Our Backup Designated Safeguarding Leads are; Miss Rochelle Tyson (Family Support Worker), Mr M Ariss (Deputy Headteacher) and Miss C Dawson (SENCO and Class Teacher).
Primet Primary School is following government advice during this unprecedented time and therefore have created an addendum Child Protection policy to ensure that all staff at Primet Primary continue to safeguard all our pupils effectively.
