Keeping children safe

Safeguarding


Hampton Lakes Primary School strives to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children in an educational setting that has a safe and welcoming environment where all children are respected and valued. 

We expect and will ensure that all staff and visitors to Hampton Lakes Primary School will be alert to signs of abuse and neglect and will follow the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) procedures to ensure that children receive appropriate and effective support and protection. 


We think you should know that the law requires all school staff to pass on information which gives rise to a concern about a child’s welfare; including risk from neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse. Where possible, any concerns raised will be discussed with you as parents or carers and the identified action will be shared. Where the school believes that a referral should be made to Children’s Social Care this will also be discussed with you, except in circumstances where such discussions may place the child at increased risk of significant harm.


We will take advice from Children’s Social Care when school staff have reasonable cause to suspect a child may be suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm.  Occasionally, concerns are passed on which are later shown to be unfounded. We appreciate that this can be distressing for families but hope that you will see that our staff will only ever act in the best interests of our children and that our main priority is to safeguard our children and ensure their wellbeing.
