What is safeguarding?

  • Protecting children from maltreatment.
  • Preventing the impairment of children’s mental and physical health or development.
  • Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.
  • Taking action to enable all the children to have the best outcomes.
Lanner Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Our school community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This means that we have Safeguarding Policies and procedures in place, which are available on the website and/or from the school office on request. All staff, including our visitors, volunteers and supply staff, must ensure that they are aware of our procedures; parents and carers are welcome to read these also. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with their parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child's best interests. There is a wealth of information available to support schools and parents to keep children safe online. The following list of websites is not exhaustive but should provide a useful starting point for you.
