Safeguarding children

SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN
 
Your child’s welfare is of paramount importance to us. It is our statutory duty of care to safeguard your child. We will also seek external support if we have any concerns about your child and, in some instances, this may mean that we consult with other agencies even before we contact you.
 
The procedures we follow have been laid down by the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board. If you want to know more about this procedure, please speak to the Headteacher.
 
At St Mary’s, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff, governors, parents, volunteers and visitors to share in this commitment.
 
Alongside the Headteacher the (DSL) designated senior lead teacher for safeguarding is Mr Blaney; we have set up a ‘safeguarding team’ at St Mary’s consisting of Miss Cusack, Mr Blaney, Mr Clinton and Mrs Jones. You may approach any of these staff members if you have a concern about any safeguarding issue.
