At All Saints’, the children are at the heart of everything we do and therefore ensuring their health, safety and wellbeing is our priority. We must safeguard all our children from any actual, or potential, risk or harm, ensure they feel safe at school and, should it be necessary, put in to place the most effective support as early as possible.
All Saints’ is a ‘School Family’ and we see the safety, health and wellbeing of our children as being everybody’s responsibility. We are a small school and therefore benefit from knowing all the children very well. Everyone who works at All Saints’ has a professional responsibility for our children, to be vigilant and notice if a child is causing concern and may appear to be at risk of harm.
Staff receive regular training and follow strict safeguarding procedures to protect the children and know to pass on concerns to relevant personnel who can act to protect them.
At All Saints’, those leading safeguarding for our school, referred to as the ‘Designated Safeguarding Leads’ (DSL), are Mrs Anita Fagan (Headteacher) and Mrs Anne O'Dwyer (Deputy Headteacher). Mrs Kaye Graves is our Governor responsible for Safeguarding within the school.
Please see our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy (including an Annex in response to COVID-19) below.
Supporting Our Families

If you are worried about anything, big or small, any class teacher can be relied upon to be discrete and confidential and can be approached to source support. We also have a wonderful School Nurse, who can be contacted if you are worried about anything.

KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE IN EDUCATION
As the world keeps turning and developing new technology it is vitally important to ensure our children are using the internet safely. In school the children receive internet safety lessons which teach them the rules of being safe online. We also need to make sure that the children are aware of how to be safe at home too.
On this page you will find some useful resources which will help you ensure that any technology the children are using at home, is safe. At school, we keep the children safe through web filtering, vigilance from staff and important internet safety assemblies and lessons.
