Safeguarding Statement

Telscombe Cliffs Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitments including our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed on this website.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would compromise the child’s welfare.


We support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.


Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Catherine Allison (Head of School). Our Deputy DSLs are Jayne Campling (Deputy Head), Peter Ediss (Deputy Head), Maree Rhodes (SENCO), Natasha Honeyball (Parent Welfare Officer), Rona Penfold (Class Teacher/Phase Leader) and Lara Featherstone (Nursery Teacher).
