Safeguarding Children at Wallsend St Peter’s C of E Primary School
St Peter’s fully recognises the responsibility it has to have arrangements about safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
We take a range of actions to ensure that children are safe:
§ All staff are subject to a criminal records bureau enhanced disclosure
§ We check the identity information for all visiting teaching staff and other professionals
§ The school building has secured entrances and exits
§ All personnel wear identity badges and visitors are required to sign in
§ We have a regularly reviewed child protection policy
§ The Head Teacher/Acting Head Teacher is the school’s nominated child protection officer, with four deputies in this role
§ Risk assessments are undertaken for all educational visits and are completed for all areas of the school premises
We comply with the Local Authority’s policies and procedures around safe practices for Health and Safety.
With this in mind, we respectfully ask parents to only access school buildings via the main school office. If you have an appointment to meet with a member of staff, please sign in at the school office and you will be escorted to the appropriate room.
