Chesterton Primary School is committed to Safeguarding and Promoting the Welfare of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at school, their behaviour may be challenging. We recognise that some children who have experienced abuse may harm others. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.
The school’s senior members of staff with designated responsibility for child protection, Mrs Venner, Mrs Buckland, Miss Greenow & Mr Tew undertake child protection training and training in inter–agency working.
