Information for Visitors

Information for visitors, supply staff and volunteers

 

Woldgate is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  This means we have a Child Protection Policy and accompanying procedures in place

All people in the school community have a responsibility to act on any concerns that they have about a child’s wellbeing.

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concerns, and any observations or conversations heard, and report these as soon as possible the same day.

‘Record of Concern’ Forms are available from Ruth Ibbeston (CPC).  Please complete this Form and return it to her, Amanda Longstaff (DSL) or the Headteacher (Mr. J. Britton).

If the Form is not available ensure that the full details are recorded including date, time, child’s name, your name and a factual account of what was said or observed.  Please ensure this information is delivered to the CPC confidentially and as quickly as possible.

Do NOT conduct your own investigation.  Keep all concerns or information confidential.

 

You might be concerned if:

  • You see an injury.
  • Another person expresses concerns.
  • Something else raises concerns or worries.
  • A pupil tells you something.
  •  

If a pupil tells you something that needs to be passed on:

  • Promise confidentiality not secrecy.
  • Reassure the child that they have done the right thing.
  • Listen but do not ask leading questions.
  • Record and pass on your concerns immediately.

 

Your help in supporting our safeguarding work is appreciated by the school and, most importantly, by the children and young people.
