We take safeguarding very seriously at Rossett Acre ensuring children are safe and that they feel safe is paramount. We are committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school.
Rossett Acre Primary School, follows the Red Kite Learning Trust Safeguarding Procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their child/ren. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead in school is the (DHT) Miss Kate Woodcock who is our the Designated Senior Leader for Child Protection (DSL) and any concerns should be addressed to her. Our Learning Mentor, Gail Bland is our Deputy DSL and can be approached with any concerns.
Our Headteacher, Mrs Corrine Penhale is also DSL trained.
Safeguarding arrangements are secure within the school, and kept under constant review. Safeguarding has a high profile visually within the school environment through classroom, corridor, entrance displays and notices. We have good whole school systems in place which are monitored by Senior Leadership and Governors. We use the LA Safeguarding audit for schools. We are proactive in identifying safeguarding risks and also responsive to any safeguarding incident or concern raised. Advice and support is sought and used well, including contacting our Safeguarding Lead as and when required.
