Safeguarding our pupils: a priority at Priory School.


At Priory School, the safety and well-being of our pupils are our highest priorities. We are dedicated to creating a nurturing and secure environment where every child can thrive, both academically and socially. Our comprehensive safeguarding policy ensures that all staff are thoroughly trained in child protection procedures and are committed to upholding the highest standards of safety.


We believe in fostering a culture of openness where children feel confident to speak up, knowing they will be heard and supported. Our safeguarding measures include rigorous staff recruitment checks, regular training, and clear procedures for handling any concerns about a child's welfare. We also work closely with parents, guardians, and external agencies to ensure that our pupils receive the support and protection they need.


At Priory school, every child’s safety is embedded in everything we do, every day. We are committed to providing a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment where all students can learn and grow with confidence.


If you have concerns about a child’s welfare, please contact a member of the safeguarding team via the main reception or Please see below our safeguarding team;

Staff training

Every member of staff, volunteers and governors complete annual training to ensure that they are all appropriately aware of the school procedures and policies for safeguarding. Staff will be able to recognise signs of abuse and what to do if they are worried about a child. We build trusting relationships and a supportive environment so that children feel comfortable sharing concerns with staff.


Information sharing

There are times when we need to record, monitor and share information with external agencies such as social care or the police. In most cases, we share this information with the child’s parents or carers unless this is not in the best interest of the child. The child will always be our priority and any decisions made will be based on that premise.


Reporting concerns about a member of staff

If you have concerns that involve a member of staff then you should report this to the Headteacher, Hannah Foster.

If your concern relates to the Headteacher, your concern should be reported to Caroline Masih, chair of governors.
