Child Protection at Glebe

At our school, we take the safety and well-being of your child very seriously. Our staff are trained to watch out for any signs that a child might need extra support or protection.

We follow specific procedures called SET procedures, which aligns to our Safeguarding policy, to make sure that children get the help they need if they’re at risk of harm or neglect.

As parents and carers, it’s important for you to know that if a staff member is worried about your child’s safety or welfare, they might need to talk to you about it. They’ll always try to have an open and sensitive conversation with you first, and they’ll only involve other services like Social Care if it’s absolutely necessary to keep your child safe.

We also make sure that any information we share about your child is done securely and with the utmost care. It’s all about making sure your child is safe and gets the right support they need.

If our staff ever have concerns about a child’s safety, they’ll always seek advice from Social Care to make sure they’re doing the best thing for your child.

The member of staff responsible for Safeguarding and Child Protection at our school (known as the Designated Safeguarding Lead) takes their role very seriously. They’re here to make sure that every decision is made in the best interest of your child.

Your child’s safety and well-being are our top priorities, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.
