'Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play.' (KCSIE 2020)
At Hugo Meynell Primary School we believe that it is always unacceptable for a child or young person to experience abuse of any kind and recognise that safeguarding the welfare of all children and young people is everyone’s responsibility. We follow Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB) procedures and acknowledge that the welfare of the child is paramount. We believe that every child matters and that everyone has the right to be heard.
All schools must have a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). This is a member of the leadership team with appropriate authority, responsible for dealing with safeguarding issues, providing advice and support to other staff, liaising with the local authority, and working with other agencies.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead at Hugo Meynell is Mrs Bronwen Gleave, Headteacher.
Designated Safeguarding Deputies are Mrs Katie Adcock, Deputy Headteacher, and Miss Amy Carter, SENDCo.
The Governing Body safeguarding champion is Mrs Michelle Williams, Chair of Governors.
