At Oldfield Brow Primary School we are totally committed to safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children. It is our number one priority and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We make every effort to provide a safe and welcoming environment underpinned by a culture of openness where both children and adults feel secure, able to talk and believe that they are being listened to.
The school has a comprehensive policy so that we can provide staff, volunteers and governors with the framework they need to keep children safe and secure in our school and to inform parents and guardians how we will safeguard their children whilst they are in our care.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism as well as British Values.
We are an 'Operation Encompass' school; a police-led initiative to support children who may have witnessed or been affected by domestic abuse.
Our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL) are Mrs Dawn Moody and Mrs Joanne Norbury (Assistant Headteachers)
Our Deputy DSL is Miss Lisa Pritchard (Personal Development Leader)
The governor with responsibility for safeguarding at our school is Dr Amy Wilson
Senior Mental Health Leader: Mrs Dawn Moody
Emotional Literacy Support Assistants: Mrs Valerie Canham and Mrs Kellie Parker
