Safeguarding

West Acton Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. This means that we ensure that everyone working in our school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with children.

All safeguarding concerns are passed to members of staff who are specifically trained as “Designated Safeguarding Lead” (DSL) within school.

 

The Designated Safeguarding Leads in our school are:

Mrs Ives  (Deputy Head) - Designated Safeguarding Lead

Miss Kondo (Head Teacher) Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

Miss Williams  (Safeguarding Officer) - Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

The Safeguarding Governor is: David Donnarumma

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children’s health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Safeguarding is not just about protecting children from deliberate harm.  It relates to aspects of school life.

The PREVENT duty
From 1 July 2015 all schools  are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent duty.
