Mendlesham Primary School

Safeguarding

At Mendlesham Primary School we take Safeguarding very seriously.
Mendlesham Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and visitors to our school to share this commitment.

Who Can Help?

There are three two members who have the overall responsibility for the safeguarding and welfare of our pupils (including the prevention of radicalisation) – Tessa Sait, Headteacher or Tom Singleton.  ALL staff take their responsibility for safeguarding our pupils very seriously and will follow procedures to ensure that our pupils are always safe, cared for and happy.

Our governor with responsibility for safeguarding is Gillian Orves, our chair of governor is Sharon Jones.

What To Do If You Have A Concern

If you have a concern about a child, please speak to Tessa Sait (Designates Safeguarding Lead), Tom Singleton (Alternate Designates Safeguarding Lead).  They will be able to help get any necessary advice and support.

Alternatively, if you are worried that a child or young person is at risk of abuse or neglect, please contact Customer First on 0808 800 4005.
Unless you are a professional who works with children or adults, you will not have to give your name, and as long as you are not a professional who works with children, your conversation will be treated confidentially.

All our staff, students and volunteers are appropriately trained in Safeguarding and all have current Enhanced CRB/ DBS checks. We follow Suffolk County Council’s guidelines for ‘Safer Recruitment’ when employing new staff. We are trained in the ‘Prevent Duty’ and take this very seriously. All staff are trained in School Safe.

Any parents must also be CRB/DBS checked before helping in class, and all tradespeople such as builders, plumbers, engineers etc who may need to work in the School, are also CRB/DBS checked.

We have an electronic system of locks on our doors so that we know children are completely safe inside our building and ‘strangers’ are not able to enter.

Please see our Policies page for our Safeguarding and Anti-Radicalisation Policy and other related Policies.
