Meet our Designated Safeguarding Leads


Keeping children safe in Stirchley Primary School is everybody's responsibility.  Safeguarding children and young people means protecting them from abuse or neglect, getting the right support in place as early as possible and creating an environment in which children and young people feel safe and healthy.

We all have a personal responsibility to notice when a child or young person may be at risk of harm and pass our concerns to someone who can act to protect them.

Our key principles are:

  • Always see the child first. 
  • Never do nothing. 
  • Do with, not to, others. 
  • Do the simple things better. 
  • Have conversations, build relationships. 


With these principles in mind, Stirchley Primary School takes the welfare of children in our care very seriously. Our staff and governors have been trained on safeguarding in line with the KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE IN EDUCATION document and follow the principles of WORKING TOGETHER TO SAFEGUARD CHILDREN. We also take part in 'PREVENT'.  Our DSL is also a WRAP trainer and all staff take part in  RIGHT HELP, RIGHT TIME awareness . We also hold a weekly Safeguarding meeting, which is compulsory for all staff to attend.
