Vigo Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

At our school we have an effective Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy with rigorous procedures in place which all staff (including any supply staff, regular volunteers and Governors) are aware of and follow. We invite parents and carers to read and familiarise themselves with our policies.  At Vigo we make sure that we follow the most up to date statutory guidance set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education and Working Together to Safeguard Children. 

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our children are discussed with parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to a DSL as soon as possible the same day.  If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which could suggest that she/he is a danger to children) then you should report this in the first instance to the Headteacher in confidence (or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher) - who will consider what action to take.
