Safeguarding

Long Crendon School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies & Procedures section of our website.

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 pupils are discussed with his/her parents/guardians first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.

Our Designated Safeguarding Leaders are Mrs Polly Quinton, Headteacher and Mrs Anna Bowden, Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Madeline Poote SENDCo and Mrs Rosanna Deppe KS1 Lead.

If you are concerned for the safety of a child in the school, please contact us, or speak directly to the Education Safeguarding Advisor Educational Safeguarding Advisory Service (ESAS) on 01296 383 962.
