Statement of Safeguarding
Lane End Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. To achieve our commitment, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff, governors and volunteers.
At Lane End, we promote a love of learning within a safe and happy school, in which every person matters. This is best achieved when we all work together to support the development of the whole child. We pride ourselves on knowing not just about our children’s learning, but about them and their families as individuals and valued members of our school and local community.
The Senior Designated Safeguarding lead person at Lane End Primary School is Mrs A Britton (Headteacher). The Designated Safeguarding Team consists of Mrs A Britton, Mrs D Sammon, Mrs K Sadler, Mrs K Dellow and Mr L Tabiner.
The designated Safeguarding Governor is Mrs V Gabriel
All adults who work in school have a responsibility to read and understand all safeguarding policies and to act within accordance of the school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection policy at all times.

Key Information – Policies
Visitors in School
All visitors in school sign in at the school office and are given an identify badge. School staff will challenge any visitor in school not wearing an identity badge.
On signing in visitors are expected to read and agree to out safeguarding policy and information.
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 star of the week assembly, productions, sports days or other events are for the enjoyment of individual families. They must not be used in any way that could potentially place a child at risk. This would include publishing images in any form of print or on the internet including social networking sites. This is emphasised before concerts and shows and during such school events.
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. If you do not wish photographs of your child to be used for these purposes, then please contact the school office.
Advice for Children
If someone is hurting you, doing things to you against your will or being mean to you, tell someone: your parents, your friends, trusted teachers or other staff at school. You should also speak to us if you are worried about someone else – a child or an adult.
At Lane End Primary School, the staff with special training to help you to be safe are: Mrs Britton, Mr Tabiner, Mrs Sammon, Mrs Dellow and Mrs Sadler. You don’t have to speak to those members of staff; any adult in school will be able to help you.
If you don’t wish to speak to someone in school, you have other choices. You can phone childLine day or night.
