Part of the Glyn Academies Trust


Chestnut Park Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place which can be viewed on our website. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures.

Sometimes, we may have  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 a pupil are discussed with the child's parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

If you are concerned about a child's welfare, please record any observations or conversations that you may have heard and report them to one of our safeguarding leads as soon as possible. Do NOT conduct your own investigation.

If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which would suggest that he or she is unsuitable to work with children) then you should report this to one of the safeguarding leads in confidence. If the concern relates to the Headteacher, you should report it to the Chair of Governors, Dr Anna Simmonds, who will consider what action should be taken.
