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

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 under the policies section (under the 'Key Information' tab above) or by clicking here: Safeguarding Policy

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

Our Designated Safeguarding Leads are Miss K Goldsmith  (Headteacher). Miss C Procter (Deputy Head) Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs R Astles (SENCO)

The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school is Len Simm

We are an Operation Encompass school.


Photographs and Videos

Whilst lots of parents and carers really enjoy seeing photos and videos of their children’s school life, we are very mindful of our duty of care towards all our pupils. We take the issue of safeguarding very seriously and this includes the use of photographic and video images.

Any photographs or videos taken by parents, carers and relatives at school productions, sports days or other events, are for the enjoyment of individual families. They must therefore not be used in any way that could potentially place a child or family at risk. This would include publishing images in any form of print or on the internet this includes sharing on any social media platforms.

Occasionally, the local press will be invited to take photographs of school events and special achievements. We like to use photographs of our children on our website, in school documents, for parent information meetings, newsletters and on our display screens around the school. Your preferences are held on file and can be changed at any time in writing or by requesting a data amendment form from the school office.
