At Rushey Green we are passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment.

We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. We have robust policies in place for ensuring the well-being of our children. These policies underpin our practice and values shared by every single member of staff in our school. Copies are available form the school office.

Any concerns about children are passed through the members of staff who are trained as “Designated Safeguarding Leads” in the school in compliance with the “sharing of information” guidance.

At Rushey Green Primary School we follow strict procedures for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children. If you have any concerns regarding the welfare/safety of a child please contact, via the school office, one of the Designated Safeguarding
