At Kimberworth Community Primary School all members of our school community are committed to safeguarding children and young people.
Adults in our school take all safeguarding concerns seriously and promote a safe, caring and positive environment where children are encouraged to talk to us if they have any worries.
Key Safeguarding Adults in School
If a member of staff, parent or visitor to the school has a concern about a child they must contact a member of our safeguarding team:
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Miss Alison Stothard
Deputy Safeguarding Leads: Mrs. Julie Edwards, Ms Alison Roddis, Mrs Donna Fowler
Designated Safeguarding Governor: Mr. Simon Currie
Operation Encompass, a partnership between South Yorkshire Police and Education, has been designed to provide support for any child in school who may be affected by a domestic abuse incident where the police have attended.
A key safeguarding member of staff in school will be informed when a domestic abuse incident has been recorded within the previous 24 hours or over the weekend. This will enable school to monitor children possibly affected and, where required, support if necessary. This will remain confidential; no information about specific incidents is shared with school. The school will, however, be able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children who have been involved in, affected by, or witnessed a domestic abuse incident.
Please take a look at the Operation Encompass file below to find information about domestic abuse support agencies.
