WOODLANDS PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILD PROTECTION AND SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT
The name of the 'designated child protection and safeguarding children's advisers' are:
Ms M Jackson
Mrs J Papa
It is the duty of all staff to report to the 'designated child protection and safeguarding children's advisers' any concerns they have about the safety and welfare of any child. The advisers will take advice from the Child Protection Advisory Team.
The school has a duty to refer information, but are not the investigators. Records will be kept and children will be monitored if the adviser has collected further pieces of evidence that causes concern. All staff have a professional responsibility to share information with other agencies in order to safeguard children. While every effort will be made to inform parents of a referral to the Child Protection Advisory Team, the safety and the welfare of the child will always be the overriding consideration and parents may not be informed.
