The school has a Safeguarding policy, which follows Wandsworth guidelines. All staff receive regular training on safeguarding issues.
Safeguarding is extremely important to us. If concerns are raised we are obliged to investigate, we do this as a way of protecting the children. This is not intended to be accusatory nor cause offence, please understand the children’s well-being is our main concern.
If your child arrives at school with bruises or scratches, your child’s teacher, the school nurse, safeguarding lead or Senior Leader will contact you to ask how the marks occurred. This is something we are required to do and is in no way accusatory. Follow up is a necessary procedure but we are well aware that all children can bump themselves or pull against their equipment. If we notice a mark when they arrive at school, we will send home a body map detailing where we have noticed the mark.
Likewise, if your child arrives home with fresh bruising or scratches, please contact either the class teacher or Headteacher and they will find out what happened. If your child has an accident, the school will of course notify you. The people with overall responsibility for safeguarding are the safeguarding leads and the school nurse.
