Wembury Primary School


Safeguarding pupils is a key priority for us at Wembury Primary School. We recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. 

We believe that: 

  • The welfare of the child is paramount
  • All children, regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, religion or sexual identity, have equal rights to protection
  • All staff have an equal responsibility to act on any suspicion or disclosure that may suggest a child is at risk of harm
  • Pupils and staff involved in child protection issues will receive appropriate support

We are required to draw the attention of parents and carers to our Child Protection and Safeguarding policy (Please see below).

Our policy will tell you about potential safeguarding risks, key staff and our referrals procedure.

We must inform all parents and carers that there may be occasions where we have to make safeguarding referrals to external agencies, without parental notification. In these cases, we assure you that we are always acting in the best interests of a child’s safety.
