Safeguarding and Child Protection

At Motcombe we work hard to provide a safe and secure environment for our children with all staff sharing responsibilities for the children’s welfare.  To that end, we have rigorous procedures in place to ensure that any adult working in the school has met all the safeguarding requirements. The PSHEe curriculum is designed to help the children become responsible, caring and confident. Strategies relating to child protection issues are addressed through activities such as ‘circle time’.

The school has an Anti-Bullying Policy, which demonstrates how this issue is tackled and what it does to ensure that all are treated with respect.

Parents and carers should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils.  In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be the subject of ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow the Child Protection Procedures and inform the Children’s Services Department of their concerns. The Headteacher (Designated Safeguarding Lead – DSL) or members of the  designated team has responsibility for co-ordinating action related to child protection and for liaison with other agencies.

The designated Child Protection Teachers at Motcombe are;

Tracy Robinson – Headteacher
Emma Moore – Assistant Headteacher
Jo Ansell – SENCO
