Church Cowley St James Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils, staff and parents. We expect all pupils, staff, volunteers and parents to share this commitment.
We have several policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, available below:
These and other policies are available to view on our policies page.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents and carers first unless we have reason to believe this would be contrary to the child’s welfare.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are:
The Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children’s Board: Useful information for parents, pupils, members of the community and professionals to protect children and young people
Contact details if you have concerns about a child, young person or community member, including details of the Local Authority Designated Officer, can be found here.
