Summary of Child Protection Information for Visitors and Volunteers


           Sundridge Primary School is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care.


Our school will support all children by:

·         Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school

We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse.  Staff working with children are well placed to identify such abuse.


At Sundridge Primary School in order to protect our children, we aim to:

·         Create an atmosphere where all our children can feel secure, valued and listened to

·         Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse

·         Respond quickly, appropriately and effectively to cases of suspected abuse


If you have a concern that a child is being harmed, is at risk of harm, or you receive a disclosure (intentionally or unintentionally) you must contact the following staff member as quickly as possible.


DSL name: Miss J Grainger                                  Deputy DSL name: Mrs M. Croome

Mrs J Brudenell

(DSL- Designated Safeguarding Lead.)


Everyone working with our children their parents and carers should be aware that:

·         Their role is to listen and note carefully any observations which could indicate abuse.

·         They should not attempt to investigate once the initial concern is raised

·         They should involve the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) immediately

·         If the DSL is not available the Head or the Deputy DSL should be contacted.

·         Disclosures of abuse or harm from children may be made at any time.


If anything worries you or concerns you, report it straight away.
