child protection and Safeguarding

The purpose of Lavenham's Safeguarding and CP Policy is to provide a secure framework for the school in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils who attend our school. We want all our pupils to feel safe and to be protected from harm in school, in the community and online.  Staff, Volunteers, Visitors and Parents understand that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play. In order to fulfill this responsibility effectively all staff should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider at all times what is in the best interests of the child.

If you have a concern about a child please contact us and inform us, or use other forms of contact is there is an immediate concern.

Prevent Duty

From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.

This duty is known as the Prevent duty.

All  staff at Lavenham Community Primary School have undertaken Prevent duty awareness training, as part of their yearly Safeguarding Training, in order to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, and know what to do when they are identified.
