Safeguarding Children

At St Swithun’s School we are committed to ensuring the safety and care of all our children.

If you think a child is in immediate danger
don’t delay.

Call the police on 999
or call the

NSPCC on 0808 800 5000
straight away.

The Governing Board and staff of St Swithun’s Catholic Primary School recognise that children have a fundamental right to be protected from harm and that pupils cannot learn effectively unless they feel safe and secure.

The Governing Board will, therefore, ensure the school environment and culture promotes self-confidence, a feeling of worth and the knowledge that pupils’ concerns will be listened to and acted upon.

Our Safeguarding Team will listen to any concerns you have about members of our school community in a confidential manner.

Our Safeguarding Team consists of:

Designated Safeguarding Lead:
Declan Dixie-Goodwin (Acting Headteacher)

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead:
Jenny Verhiest (Deputy Headteacher)

Designated Safeguarding Officers:
Ros Wilding (SENDCO)

Sarah Haynes (Deputy SENDCO)
