Gorsewood Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment.

All staff are regularly trained in Child Protection, and are fully aware of the procedures to follow if they are concerned about the wellbeing of a pupil and know who to report those concerns to.

If you have any concerns please contact the designated safeguarding staff responsible for safeguarding and child protection in our school.

  • Designated Safeguarding Lead - Miss E Jackson (Headteacher)
  • Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead - Mrs C Warner (Deputy Head)

 All our safeguarding policies are reviewed on an annual basis.
