Whimple Safeguarding Officers

Whimple Primary School is committed to ensuring the safety and welfare of all our pupils in school. Our safeguarding officers are Mrs Shilston, Miss Clarke and Miss Norton.

We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined as:

  • protecting children from maltreatment;

  • preventing impairment of children's health or development;

  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care

  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.
