The governors and staff at Loddington Church of England Primary School fully recognise the contribution that they make to safeguarding children. We recognise that all staff and volunteers have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm. Our school procedures for safeguarding children are in line with Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB).

We wish to work with parents and carers to ensure the best possible care for your child, this may occasionally involve situations about which we have cause for concern to be referred to the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub

Our prime concern is always the well-being of our pupils and, if we act, it is to protect the individual. Every school is required to have a Designated Safeguarding Lead and at Loddington Church of England Primary School this is currently Mr Neil Aiken, the Head Teacher, the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Helen Dowsett and the governor with responsibility for safeguarding is Mr Barry Hansford. You can contact these key people by contacting the school office on 01536 710175.

Any child in need, or at risk of significant harm will be reported to Mr Aiken or Mrs Dowsett in the first instance and they will contact the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub if appropriate.

You will always be informed if the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub have been contacted, unless by doing so, it is considered to be placing your child at risk.

For further information, please see a full copy of our Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy on the sidebar of the page or alternatively contact Miss Young in the school office for a hard copy.

You will find detailed below a number of links to information to help you keep your child safe and also contact details to Social Services if you have any concerns you wish to raise directly with them.

Child Sexual Exploitation

Child sexual exploitation is a form of child sexual abuse. It occurs where an individual or group takes advantage of an imbalance of power to coerce, manipulate or deceive a child or young person under the age of 18 into sexual activity (a) in exchange for something the victim needs or wants, and/or (b) for the financial advantage or increased status of the perpetrator or facilitator. The victim may have been sexually exploited even if the sexual activity appears consensual. Child sexual exploitation does not always involve physical contact; it can also occur through the use of technology.

For the youngest children, the best starting point is the NSPCC’s PANTS resources

PANTS: The Underwear Rule

Bullying

The School will always treat bullying seriously and will work with children and their parents to address any concerns. if you do have concerns please talk to your child’s class teacher or speak to Mr Aiken or Mrs Dowsett.
