I Have a Concern
Stokenchurch Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment. There is nothing more important to us than the physical health, emotional health and well-being of our pupils and staff alike.
If you have any concerns about a child, you can contact or speak to your child’s class teacher/teaching assistant before or after school, speak to a member of the Senior Leadership Team or our Safeguarding Lead. All our staff will always listen to concerns about the safety and wellbeing of a child.
You are also able to report a concern to the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (BSCP) via their website https://www.buckssafeguarding.org.uk/childrenpartnership/parent-and-carers/ or alternatively, if you want to discuss any concerns or report a concern anonymously, you can contact the First Response Team on 01296 383962 between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday or if you need an urgent response outside of these hours, contact the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) on 0800 999 7677.
A safeguarding concern is anything that makes you feel worried or uncomfortable about a child or concerned that a child may be at risk of harm or at risk of harming another. This includes your perception of the risk of radicalisation, sexual exploitation and any other form of child abuse (emotional, physical, neglect or sexual). It also includes self-harm or the use of drugs/alcohol.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy. This can be found in the Safeguarding section of our website.
