Safeguarding Children

At Stokenham Area Primary School, the health, safety and well-being of every child are our paramount concern.
We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us.  Our aim is that children enjoy their time as pupils at this school.

At this school we take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously.  This means that we have ensured that everyone working in the school has successfully completed the necessary clearances to enable them to work with pupils.  It also means that we have staff members who are specifically trained in Child Protection procedures.  We have a wide range of policies which ensure that we are in line with current safeguarding practices.

On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean we have to consult other agencies, such as the Police, or Social Services.  The procedures we follow have been laid down by Devon County Council.

By working closely with everyone concerned, we firmly believe that we will continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our learners.
