The safety and well-being of every child and member of staff at Lunsford Primary School is of great importance to us.
Here at Lunsford Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We are aware that child protection and safeguarding are fundamental to the welfare of all children in our care.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy.
We have three designated safeguarding leaders at Lunsford. Please ask to speak to one of us if you have any concerns regarding the safety or well being of any pupil.
Designated Safeguarding Leader: Mrs Elizabeth Lomax (DHT)
Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mr Gary Anscombe (HT) and Mrs Katie Till (FLO)
In their absence, you may wish to speak to members of the Senior Leadership Team: Mrs Tervet or Mrs Challans, or Mrs Collins (SENCO)
As part of our commitment to safeguarding and child protection, we fully support the government's prevent strategy, and take guidance from Teaching Approaches to help build resilience to extremism.
What is the Prevent Strategy?
The Prevent strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.
- responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views
- provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
- works with a range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health)
