Safeguarding & Child Protection Support

At Staverton CE Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  Our school is a safe place for children; every adult in our school takes  the responsibility for safeguarding our children extremely seriously. We have trained designated safeguarding leaders and a designated safeguarding governor. 

We teach the children about personal safety through our curriculum.  We have clear guidance for children, teachers and parents to help children to use the internet safely and responsibly (See our E-Safety section.)

Our staff recruitment policies and practices meet safer recruitment requirements.  We always pursue identity checks and qualification checks and we take up written references before confirming employment.  We require clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) before employing any staff, in addition to pursuing ISA list checks; this includes supply teachers and outside club and coaching staff.

Should you have any safeguarding concerns please contact one of our DSL (Designated Safeguarding Leads):  Mrs Ruth Nelmes and Mrs Bethany Young.  Our Safeguarding / Child Protection policy can be found on our Policies page.

The Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children’s Board website has a whole host of useful information for parents.  The NSCB’s vision is “Working together to ensure all children and young people grow up in a safe environment.”

About Us

Situated in the picturesque village of Staverton, our small village school is a well established and integral part of the local community. We enjoy very secure links with our local church, St. Mary's, and the strong Christian ethos and family feel within our school is shared with all of our visitors. In August 2014, our school became an academy, joining the Peterborough Diocese Education Trust.
