At Priory School we want all children and their families to feel safe, happy, and protected when they come to school. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing and welfare of all children.
If you have a concern about a child’s welfare, please record your concern and alert the Designated Safeguarding leads as soon as possible. You can also report it to the following agencies:
NSPCC Helpline: 0808 800 5000
Childline: 0800 1111
Slough Emergency Team: 01753 875362
Please see our Safeguarding policy
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.
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 Mr Debroy Barrett, chair of governors.
