‘Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who come into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children.’

Keeping Children Safe in Education

St Lawrence’s CE Primary is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors promoting a climate where children and adults feel confident about sharing concerns which they have about their own safety or the well-being of others.

Anyone with concerns about the safety of a student MUST report it to our Designated Safeguarding Lead or one of the Deputies, as soon as possible by contacting the school on 01904 806486 or email office@stl.pmat.academy.
