Child Protection and Safeguarding

At Barrowby CE Primary School we are committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our pupils.

We expect all members of our school community to share in this commitment.

We see this as:

"...everyone’s responsibility.
Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children.
In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred.
This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child."

Keeping Children Safe In Education

Safeguarding is about keeping children and young people safe. All those who come into contact with children and families in their everyday work, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

  • The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Len Batey.
  • The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss Louise Sugden.
  • The Safeguarding Governor is Mrs Sarah Cooley.

Supporting members of the Safeguarding Team are:  Mrs Natasha Selby, Mrs Tabitha Ward and Miss India Lees.

If you have any issues about child protection or have concerns regarding the safety or well-being of any child or adult in our school family, do not hesitate to contact a member of our Safeguarding Team immediately.  

The safety and well-being of the children in our care is of paramount importance.

The purpose of all that we do at Barrowby Church of England Primary School is to strive for excellence, to ensure that we create a happy and secure environment; one in which every child, irrespective of gender or ability achieves their potential; a place where each individual is nurtured so they can experience success and joy in learning.
