The Child Protection Liaison Person (CPLP) is the Headteacher, Mrs Sue Kitchen.
The CPLP Deputy is the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Angela Stewart-Milne.
The nominated Child Protection Governor is Mrs Tracey Saltsman.
At Stalyhill Junior School we:
Ensure we practice safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children
Ensure all staff and Governors are appropriately trained in issues relating to safeguarding and Child Protection
Raise awareness of safeguarding and child protection issues and equip children with the skills needed to keep them safe
Develop and implement procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of harm
Support pupils who have been subject to, or are at risk of, significant harm in accordance with their Child Protection Plan
Establish a safe environment in which children can learn and develop
We follow the procedures set out by Tameside Safeguarding Children Board and take account of guidance issued by the Department for Education and the Safer Recruitment Consortium
In school we filter the websites that are available to children and we regularly discuss with them how to stay safe online. We talk about the potential dangers of using the internet.
There is a wealth of information available to keep children safe online. This can also be helpful for parents who have any concerns about their childrens' safety online.
