Keeping Children Safe
At Church Aston Infant School we take our responsibility to safeguard children very seriously. We have a Designated Safeguarding Lead and a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead who attend regular training and updates to ensure that we are always up to date with best practice. All of our staff also attend training to ensure they are knowledgeable regarding safeguarding concerns and are able to respond appropriately. Our staff work closely together to ensure the culture of safeguarding is effective within our school.
We subscribe to a secure system called CPOMS which effectively records and stores all of our information around safeguarding and concerns raised by staff, parents, children and governors. We also work closely with professionals in the local authority when appropriate.
Designated Safeguarding Leads
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Jenny Griffiths, Headteacher.
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Sharon Powell, Class 2 Teacher.
You are always welcome to discuss any safeguarding concerns with one of our Safeguarding Leads or a member of staff.
