We would also like to reassure you that we rarely share information with other agencies about your child without first speaking to you.
Even if we make the difficult decision that we need to speak to Social Care about your child, we will always undertake to share our intention to do so with you, unless we deem that to do so could put the child at greater risk of harm, or impede a criminal investigation.
We fully understand that this can be a very distressing set of circumstances but we can only reassure you that we follow the procedures required by Worcestershire Safeguarding Children's Board.
Mrs Gittins is the Designated Safeguarding Lead in school. Mrs Palfreyman and Mrs Cooper are Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads and are also trained to deal with any child protection issues in Mrs Gittins’ absence. Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Gittins should you have a worry or concern regarding a child protection or safeguarding issue.
