Lunsford: A Journey of Success and Excellence


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 four 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. We can be contacted via email, telephone or the School Office. Please let us know you wish to speak to a DSL about a safeguarding matter so that we can prioritise your concern.


Designated Safeguarding Leader:  Mrs Elizabeth Lomax (DHT)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mr Gary Anscombe (HT), Ms Sarah Beckett (SENCO) and Mrs Amy Taylor (FLO)


Our safeguarding governor is Mrs Jacky Sharpe who can be contacted via the School Office.


If you have a safeguarding concern out of school hours or during the holidays, you should call the Integrated Front Door on 03000 411111 or contact the NSPCC via their website or by telephone 0808 800 5000

Prevent strategy

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)

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information sharing partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. Information is shared by the police with a school's trained Key Adult (DSL) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident thus enabling appropriate support to be given, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.


Children experiencing domestic abuse are negatively impacted by this exposure; domestic abuse has been identified as an Adverse Childhood Experience and can lead to emotional, physical and psychological harm. Operation Encompass aims to mitigate this harm by enabling immediate support, making a child's day better and giving them a better tomorrow.

Operation Encompass believes that children are victims of domestic abuse in their own right and should be acknowledged as such.
