Child Protection and Safeguarding at St. John’s Walham Green CE Primary School

Keeping ourselves and others safe at school is everyone’s responsibility and the priority for all staff and governors.  All adults have been trained in Child Protection and Safeguarding.

We ensure that safeguarding themes are woven throughout our curriculum and that pupils are encouraged to become assertive individuals, empowered with the knowledge and understanding of how to keep themselves and others safe.  Pupils report that they feel safe at our school and that they know what to do if they feel worried, anxious, overwhelmed or upset.

Our safeguarding team: 

Mrs Wightwick

Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Abu-Ghaida

Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Wilson

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mr Stock

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead



Through the practices and procedures laid out in our Safeguarding policy, we ensure that:

  1. Appropriate action is taken in a timely manner to safeguard and promote children’s welfare
  2. All staff are aware of their statutory responsibilities with respect to safeguarding
  3. Staff are properly training in recognising and reporting safeguarding issues

Please see our full policy document for more detailed information.
