Staff and governors at Glasshouses Primary School fully understand the responsibilities and duties placed upon us to have arrangements to safeguard and promote the security, safety and welfare of all pupils, staff within our school as well as extending it to visitors to our school. We recognise that all staff, governors, volunteers, including visitors, have a full and active part to play in protecting pupils and adults within our school from harm. We believe that our school should provide a safe, caring, positive and stimulating environment in which pupils can learn, staff can work and visitors can visit, feel welcome and enjoy being part of our school community, one which promotes the social, physical and emotional well-being of each individual pupil and adult within it.
The staff members below have key roles and responsibilities in school to ensure that all children are safe, however, all staff recognise their role in keeping children safe and are vigilant to identifying concerns at the earliest stage. When it comes to issues of child protection or safeguarding, we maintain the attitude of ‘it could happen here’.
