Responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in its care
Leigh Beck Infant and Nursery Academy takes its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in its care very seriously.
‘The welfare of the child is paramount’ (The Children’s Act 1989)
Section 175 of the Education Act 2002 places a statutory responsibility on the governing body to have procedures and policies in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils at the school.
Our foremost priority is to keep pupils safe and healthy. There are safeguarding notices around the school to remind staff and visitors of our procedures with the key message that ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, every day.'
Members of staff responsible for Safeguarding:
Mrs Emma Lane (Head teacher)
Mrs Tracy Smith (Acting Head of School)
In the case that concerns are raised about the Head teacher, the following governors should be contacted (contact telephone numbers available on school posters):
