St. Michael's Church of England Primary School is committed to the welfare and safety of all of its pupils and provides a 'safe, secure and happy' environment that promotes social, physical and moral development of the individual child. We make every effort to provide a safe and welcoming environment underpinned by a culture of openness where both children and adults feel secure, able to talk and believe that they are being listened to. We maintain an attitude of 'it could happen here' where safeguarding is concerned.
The school follows procedures outlined in the Berkshire Local Safeguarding Board (BLSB) which is easily accessed online at (http://proceduresonline.com/berks).
At St Michael's we are responsible for your child's safety whilst they are at school and/or on a school trip. We take this responsibility extremely seriously; please contact us as soon as possible if you have any concerns.
As part of the Prevent Strategy, our priority is to keep children safe, by working together with key partner agencies and all our communities to ensure that we tackle any kind of extremism and radicalisation.
We want to work closely with our community to build confidence in a two-way flow of information so as to quickly identify those most vulnerable and in need of support.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Emma Klinker (Assistant Head) and our Deputy Designated Officer is Lorna Anderton (Headteacher).
Our Safeguarding Governor is Maureen Atkinson.
