Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our Churchill children is of paramount importance to us; being and feeling safe and secure is a pre-requisite for thriving in childhood. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have any safeguarding concerns, please contact Mrs Kinsey - the Designated Safeguarding Leader in school.
The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leaders Mrs Jax, Mrs Hendy and Mrs Carter are also able to support with any safeguarding concerns that you may have.
Parents and carers send their children to school each day with the expectation that the school provides a safe and secure environment in which their children can flourish. We, therefore, have to ensure that this expectation becomes reality. In order to achieve this, a wide range of measures are put into place:
The Governing Board keep all safeguarding policies under regular review. They ensure the Head Teacher provides termly updates on safeguarding as part of her report to Governors. The Governing Board appoints a named Governor for Child Protection and Looked After Children.
Safeguarding children and young people is everyone’s responsibility.
Kent Safeguarding Children Board
