Please record any concerns/information on the safeguarding Cause for Concern form and hand to one of the above people immediately.

PLEASE ALSO REFER TO SCHOOL PROCEDURES

The governance and staff at Grange Park Primary School fully recognise the contribution the school plays in safeguarding children. The safety and protection of all children is of paramount importance and all staff, including volunteers, have a full and active part to play in protecting children from harm.

If staff have any concerns about a child, or if a child has made a disclosure relating to physical, emotional or sexual abuse, neglect, female genital mutilation (FGM) or radicalisation, the staff MUST follow the schools procedures as outlined in the Child Protection Policy. These include:

                           TEDDY

  • Tell me what happened
  • Explain what you mean (so you are clear about people and events
  • Describe what happened
  • Do not promise confidentiality
  • Your responsibility is to contact a designated member of staff

 

  • Listen carefully to what the child has to say. Avoid asking leading questions. Use TEDDY.
  • Speak to one of the named child protection teachers above IMMEDIATELY and complete the school’s Cause for Concern form, handing it to either the lead or deputy lead teacher.
  • Ensure you do not promise confidentiality to the child.

In cases of FGM you need to remember your duty to report concerns to the police
