Oldbury Wells School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a Code of Conduct for all visitors to the school. This is on display in Reception and details our arrangements and expectations of visitors.
Child Protection is central to what we do – if you have a concern about a child, you can raise this with the Shropshire Safeguarding Community Partnership:
The school has a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and associated procedures in place to ensure that safeguarding and child protection issues are dealt with efficiently and appropriately.
All staff, including our support staff, visitors, and volunteers are made aware of our procedures, and parents/guardians are welcome to read the policy located in the Policy Documents section of our website.
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 always ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with their parents/guardians first, unless there is reason to believe that this is not in the student’s best interests.
If you have a concern about a child, particularly if you think he or she may be suffering or at risk of suffering harm, it is your responsibility to share the information promptly with:
Joanne Green - Safeguarding and Welfare Officer
Katharine Warner - Designated Safeguarding Lead
Tom Williams - Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Becky Lawson - Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
