Mrs Armstrong is our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). Mr Jones and Mrs Elton are also Child Protection Designated Officers. Please contact them if you have any concerns about the safety or well-being of any pupils.
Child Protection is a crucial part of our work at Newsham Primary School. Staff are provided with regular high quality training that provides updates to national and local information and ensures staff are equipped with the knowledge, skills and understanding required to keep our children safe.
Child Protection Training for 2019-2020 particularly focuses on;
- Operation Encompass (protecting children from the risks associated with Domestic Violence)
- Operation Endeavour (protecting children at risk of being “missing in education”)
- Child Protection through E Safety
- CPOMS (Child Protection Online Management System) training and updates
Teachers, HLTAs and Band 4 Teaching Assistants received our latest training on 2.9.2019. Training will be disseminated to other staff groups throughout 2019-2020.
