Safeguarding and Child Protection
At Huncoat Primary School we believe that everyone who comes into contact with children & their families has an important role to play in safeguarding children.
The School's Designated Safeguarding Lead is - Mrs R Dickinson - Head Teacher and our Deputy Safeguarding Leads are - Mrs MacMahon- Deputy Head Teacher and Mrs Alldritt - Pastoral Support
School has a pastoral phone - please request the number from the office. You can use this phone if you have any concerns, need support or help - you can contact us at any time
All staff have a responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn. All staff have a responsibility to identify children who may be in need of extra help or who are suffering, or are likely to suffer significant harm. All staff then have a responsibility to take appropriate action, working with other services as needed.
Staff and volunteers must feel able to raise concerns about poor or unsafe practice and potential failures in the school’s safeguarding regime. Huncoat Primary School’s whistleblowing procedures are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure such concerns are raised with the management team.
