Safeguarding Policies and Information

Safeguarding Statement

At Trinity Catholic School the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.

We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection, and children are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of physical/emotional harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Warwickshire Local Safeguarding Children’s Board and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Matt Alton (Senior Assistant Principal alton.m1@welearn365.com).

The Additional Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Joanne Price (SENDCO Price.j8@welearn365.com), Mrs Nikki Smith-O’Regan (School Counsellor Smith-Thompson.n@welearn365.com), Mr Charlie Thompson (Head of Year 7 and 8 Thompson.c@welearn365.com), Miss Leah Crossman (Inclusion Manager Crossman.l@welearn365.com) and Mrs Becky Grove (Attendance Manager grove.r2@welearn365.com)

The Designated Person for Looked After Children (LAC) is Mrs Joanne Price.

If you are concerned about the safety of a child, you can email the DSL on the email addresses provided above.
