Safeguarding Statement

Whytemead Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The governing body has a duty of care to pupils and all members of the school community. We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
 
Our designated member of staff for Child Protection and Safeguarding is Mr Gavin Ward, Headteacher. He can be contacted on 01903 202639. In his absence, Mrs Clare Mavin (Deputy Headteacher) or Mrs Kate Williams (SENco) can deal with any safeguarding or child protection concerns on 01903 202639.
 
Our governor with responsibility for safeguarding is Mrs Polly Hearn.
