Mendlesham Primary School


At Mendlesham Primary School we take Safeguarding very seriously.

If you are worried about a Safeguarding issue, please speak to our Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Lead (Mrs Tessa Sait) or our Alternate Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Lead (Mr Tom Singleton).

Our Safeguarding Governors are Mrs Gillian Orves (who is also the Prevent Governor) and Mrs Rebecca Riches. The Governors can be contacted through the School Office.

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.
