At Christ Church (Church of England) Infant and Nursery School we are committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share the same commitment. Mrs Milhavey-Jones is the Designated Lead for Child Protection and Safeguarding for the School.
In line with the Children's act (1989) it is the duty of the school to contact outside agencies such as the police, social services or other investigative agencies, as a constructive measure, where there are concerns that a child may have been harmed or in danger of harm. The overriding duty of care in all circumstances is to the child.
Should parents have a concern that a child may have been harmed or be in danger of harm they should contact Mrs Milhavy-Jones (Interim Head of School) as the Designated Safeguarding Lead or, in her absence, Mrs K Jackson (Interim Executive Headteacher) or Mrs McHale (Foundation stage Coordinator) as Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads. Information is also available on the Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children's Board website.
