At Woodlands Primary school, we aim to provide a safe, supportive and inclusive environment, which secures the well-being and very best outcomes for the children in our care.
We have a duty of care to safeguard and promote the wellbeing of all children. We take this responsibility seriously and as such, we have clear systems and procedures in place to ensure that no child should suffer from harm, at home or at school.
All staff have a statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of the children.
If you are worried about the safety or welfare of any young person, at home or at school, please ensure you report your concerns to either Mrs. Papa or Ms Jackson (our school designated safeguarding leads)
The designated member of staff for child protection may refer the matter to social care, the police or any other agencies. All adults who come into contact with children at Woodlands Primary School have a duty of care to safeguard the children and promote their welfare.

Reach out support for parents
The NSPCC have created a help line for children experiencing sexual harassment in school.
Young people and adults can call 0800 136 663 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The New helpline will also offer support and guidance to adults and professionals working with children in education
The Department for Education has commissioned the NSPCC to launch a new helpline called Report Abuse in Education. The helpline comes after numerous anonymised testimonials of sexual harassment and abuse in schools and colleges were shared to the Everyone’s Invited website this week.
The newly launched helpline will provide support to:
- children and young people who want to share current and non-recent experiences of sexual abuse and harassment
- children and young people who want to talk about being involved in or witnessing any incidents
- anyone who works or volunteers in a school setting and needs support and guidance
- adults who have experienced non-recent abuse
- parents and carers who are concerned about their own child or other children.
