Holy Trinity is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
If you have any safeguarding concerns please don't hesitate to contact us at school. We have a designated safeguarding team consisting of:
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Linda Thompson
Deputy Safeguarding Lead: Jenny Morrell
Deputy Safeguarding Lead: Helen Daniels
Safeguarding Co-ordinator/Learning Mentor: Jude Rankin
Safeguarding Governor: Marlyn Banham
If you are ever unsure please contact the school office on 01704 538 366 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to help you.
Our team attend regular update meetings and training in all aspects of Safeguarding, including Prevent, Domestic Abuse, Neglect and Early Help and Safer Recruitment. Every other member of staff in school including Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Lunch Time Supervisors, Site Team, Governors and the Office Team all receive yearly Safeguarding Training as a minimum along with regular updates.
