Safeguarding and Child Protection relates to the protection of children from maltreatment, preventing impairment of health and/or development, ensuring that children grow up in the provision of safe and effective care and optimising children’s life chances to enter adulthood successfully.

Everyone who works with children and young people has a responsibility for safeguarding and protecting children and young people from harm.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility therefore all staff at Queen’s Manor Primary School are trained and have regular refresher training in order to remain vigilant when protecting our children and young people.

Queen’s Manor Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All concerns are passed through the members of staff who are trained as ‘Designated Safeguarding Leads and Child Protection Officers’ (DSL).

The Designated Person is: Sarah Downey
The Deputy Designated Persons are:  Ali Wells, Lauren Naftis, Helen Gidley and Lilli Landau.
The Nominated Governor for Child protection & Safeguarding is: Fr Ross Gunderson

We advocate early help processes and, where possible, we will identify any difficulties or concerns early in order to act preventatively. We will always provide support and advice for families and parents/carers whilst acting in the best interests of the pupils at all times.  We work closely with outside agencies to ensure support for pupils and families.

Staff are asked to report any causes for concern to the DSL. Any concerns will be shared with parents as early as possible, however, should a pupil disclosure be of a more serious nature, then the DSL has a duty of care to inform London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham Children’s Services.

If you have any concerns around the safeguarding of your child or any other child or young person please contact a DSL or DDSL.
