Ultimately, effective safeguarding of children can only be achieved by putting children at the centre of the system, and by every individual and agency playing their full part, working together to meet the needs of our most vulnerable children in line with Working Together 2018 and Keeping Children Safe In Education 2021.
At Whixall CE Primary School and Nursery, the governors and staff fully recognise the contribution that our school makes to safeguarding children. We recognise that the safety and protection of all pupils is of paramount importance and that all staff, including volunteers, have a full and active part to play in protecting pupils from harm.
Miss Brayford is our School's Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)
