Woodlands Primary Academy

Reporting a Concern 

Woodlands Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children. All adults visiting or working on site at  Woodlands have a part to play in ensuring we keep our children and each other safe.

In order to protect children at Woodlands we will;
- Create an atmosphere where all children feel safe, valued and listened to
- Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse in all forms
- Act quickly and effectively when concerns around the welfare of our children are raised

All adults working with our children will know that;
- They have a duty of care to safeguard all children whilst on site at Woodlands
- Disclosures of abuse can happen at any time and to anyone in school
- They should immediately report any concerns around the welfare of a child to a member of the safeguarding team
- Their role is not to investigate any concerns raised

If you become worried about a child or by something you see or hear whilst on your visit to our school this information must be shared verbally, with a safeguarding lead, within 10 minutes.
