  1. Key Information
  2. Safeguarding



At Newker Primary School the most important aspect of our role is the safeguarding of the children in our care. We take this duty very seriously and believe that it is the responsibility of everyone who comes into contact with our children and their families. At all times we must consider what is in the best interest of the child.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads in school are:

Mrs Kirkland- Headteacher

Mrs Curtis- Deputy Headteacher

Mrs McEwan- Assistant Headteacher

Mr Sains- SENDCO

Mrs Izomor- Parental Support Adviser

Mrs Kathryn Athey- Chair of Governors

We define safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children as: protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of children's health or development; ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Staff undergo regular training to support them in their roles and rigorous vetting procedures are followed when seeking to employ new members of our team. In order to uphold our principles we also ensure that all staff, and visitors where appropriate, understand and follow the policies below, which set out what we do in practice.
