St. Sebastian's Primary School and Nursery is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy, which can be found below.
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.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Martin Gater (Head Teacher).
The Deputy Designated Leads are Mrs Brigid Cook (SENDco), Mrs Leanne Fildes and Mrs Heather Barnes (Deputy Head).
The Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Vicky Wilkins.
