Safeguarding

Safeguarding Statement

Holy Trinity Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of our pupils and expects all adults working in school, staff and volunteers, to share this commitment. For detailed information please see our Child Protection Policy (see link below).

Sometimes we may need to share information and work with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We ensure that concerns are discussed with parents/carers first unless there is reason to believe that this would be contrary to a child’s welfare.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Jeremy Handscomb (Head of School)

Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) is Steve Morton (Deputy Head)

Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL) is Chloe Mountford (Nursery)

If you have a concern about a child, you may consult the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead or deputy who will be able to look into the matter and decide if action is required to ensure the child's safety and well being. They can be contacted by Email: holytrinity@redstartpartnership.co.uk or phone Tel: 01823 284128.

If you believe a child may be at immediate risk of harm, you may make a referral to Somerset Children's Social Care on 0300 123 2224. 

Statutory guidance from the Dept. of Eduction in their new 2018 document - Keeping Children Safe in Education - sets out what schools must do to comply with the law.  

Our Safeguarding policy has been written in response to the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018 guidance. Our policy is reviewed annually however we are continually reviewing our procedures in light of any new guidance and local issues that arise.
