2018 Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy.
We take safeguarding very seriously at Our Lady of Victories Catholic Primary School . Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Mitchell. Mr Devlin, Mrs Los and Mrs Mitchell are also fully trained. Mr Watson is the named governor for Safeguarding. Please contact us at school straight away if you have any worries about children's safeguarding. Some of the policies and documents on this page may be helpful.
Signs and Symptoms of Potential Abuse
We expect all members of our school community to remain vigilant to the signs and symptoms of potential abuse and report any concerns to our Designated Safeguarding Leads. There are 4 main categories of abuse to be aware of;
- Physical Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
In addition to these 4 areas, the following Safeguarding issues are also high on our agenda;
- The Prevent Duty (Radicalisation & Extremism)
- Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
- Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)
- Children Missing From Education (CME)
