Safeguarding and Child Protection at Vicar’s Green Primary School
Every child has the right to grow up in a caring and safe environment. However, some children live in families that are having a difficult time and cannot cope with their problems, whilst others are deliberately hurt or neglected by adults around them. We have a duty to report anything which we consider a cause for concern.
What to do if you are worried about a child
If you are concerned that a child or young person is being harmed through abuse or neglect you should contact the local authority's Children and Families unit on (020) 8825 8000 (Ealing) and (020) 8937 4300 (Brent) or the Police on 999 in emergency situations.
Ms Ellen is our Designated Senior Person for safeguarding and is also the Child Protection Lead. Email her or telephone on (020)8 997 6734. Mrs Basu Roy is our Assistant Child Protection Lead and Mrs Basu Roy deputises as Designated Senior Person in Ms Ellen’s absence. Ms T. Bennett is the school Family Liaison Officer and works in our school every Thursday. The School Governor responsible for safeguarding is Mrs E Balodimou.
Complaints or Concerns about a Member of Staff
Complaints or concerns about a member of staff should be made directly to Ms Ellen the Headteacher. Call or email the school and ask to speak to her directly on a safeguarding issue. The Headteacher will always take professional advice from the local authority on how to proceed with all allegations against staff. Any complaint or concern about the Headteacher should be made directly to the Chair of Governors, Mr Munir Ahmed. You can do this in writing, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the School Office and ask for a direct number.
