Our Safeguarding Statement

Whiston Junior and Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this committment.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding committment, including our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website and below.

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

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. 

The Designated Safeguarding Lead Officer (DSL) is Mrs Tina Angell. Mrs Angell is also the lead person for Looked After Children (LAC).

If you have any concerns related to any child in school please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Angell.
