Keeping children safe and happy is at the heart of everything we do at The Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School. We recognise that all staff, including volunteers, have a full and active part to play in protecting our pupils from harm. We believe that our school should provide a caring, positive safe and stimulating environment, which promotes the social, physical and moral development of every child and therefore we take safeguarding extremely seriously whilst retaining a balanced approach.

 

We have clear recruitment procedures – every member of staff has full checks and up to date references– and all staff receive appropriate training at regular intervals.

 

We have policies and practices that focus on ensuring the health and well-being of the children, for example: risk assessments before every class trip, a regularly updated health and safety review.

 

We have well-established ways of monitoring and responding to incidents of concern, for example: unexplained absences, difficult behaviour and significant changes in physical or emotional appearance.

 

The ethos of the school is open so that staff, parents and children always feel able to share concerns.

 


 

 Some useful contacts: 

M.A.S.H TEAM

The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) deals with referrals from professionals and members of the public who may have concerns about a child’s welfare following contact with the helpline that is now also based in the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub. It makes the process of dealing with referrals quicker and more effective by improving the way county council: Children’s social care, Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS), Youth Offending Service (YOS) and education, work alongside other partner agency colleagues including Northamptonshire police, Northamptonshire health partners, National Probation Service, and the East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) to share information.
