Safeguarding our Children
The school safeguarding team can be contacted via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Compass Point Primary School is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors and promoting a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing any concerns they may have about their own safety or the safety of others. We aim to safeguard and promote the welfare of children by protecting them from harm.
We have staff members who are specifically trained and nominated as the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) within school. These are
Linda Brown, Headteacher
Mike Howshall, Learning Mentor
It is our policy to share any concerns we have about staff conduct around children with the Headteacher. As in all schools, if there are concerns about the conduct of any members of staff then these should be shared with the Headteacher or Chair of Governors.
We follow the Bristol Child Protection Procedures and the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board local guidance and have systems in place to share concerns regarding children’s welfare, child sexual exploitation, Prevent/radicalisation and female genital mutilation with our DSLs, with parents and with relevant external agencies. Part of our legal duty to safeguard our children may also include us needing to consult specifically with and take advice from the Police or Children's Social Care, should the need arise.
By working closely together as a staff and with our partner agencies, we firmly believe that we will continue to offer a safe learning environment for all our children.
If you are concerned for a child please call First Response 0117 903 6444
Please take the time to read our policies and do not hesitate to contact the school should you have any questions about any issues.
