At St Patrick’s RCVA Primary School, we regard the safeguarding of children as our main priority. We believe that we all have the right to be happy, to be safe and to learn. We all have the responsibility to make this happen.
Designated Teachers for Child Protection
All staff have been trained to safeguard children. Some staff have received additional training so that they know how to deal with concerns. The teachers designated to this role are: Mrs Pauline Burnside (Head Teacher) and Mrs Helen Nowell (Class Teacher). If you have any concerns, please bring them to their attention.
The governor responsible for Safeguarding and Child Protection is Andrew Aberdeen, Foundation Governor. Andrew works in a secondary school and has received training in safeguarding children and other associated training.
When staff are recruited, at least one member of the panel has been trained in Safer Recruitment.
