Are you worried about a child?
At CPJS we take safeguarding seriously. If you have any worries about the safety of a child, it is important you know who to share them with and what to do: together we are all responsible for the care and welfare of children.
- Are you a parent who needs support with a difficult issue, from your child’s behaviour to a problem related to domestic violence?
- Are you a child who needs to talk to someone about things that are worrying you?
- Do you have concerns about the safety or well-being of another child or think they are at risk of abuse or neglect?
What to do?
1 - Speak to one of our Designated Officers for the Safeguarding of children.
At Chester Park Junior School, these people are , Claire Woolley Deputy Head, Mike McNama, our Headteacher, Laura Woodham our Assistant Head teacher and Kath Morley, Administration Assistant.
Or if you prefer, you can discuss your worries with your child's class teacher who will be able to talk things through informally, or support you with what to do next.
If you would like to discuss anything which is of a concern, however small, please call into school to speak to us, or contact us via telephone or email:
Tel: 0117 3773365
email: firstname.lastname@example.org , marked confidential and for the attention of either Kath Morley, Claire Woolley or Mike McNama
