Safeguarding Statement


At Great Kimble CofE School, the health, safety and well-being of every child is our paramount concern. We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us.  Our aim is that children will enjoy their time as pupil in our school.  We want to work in partnership with parents to help your child to achieve their full potential and make a positive contribution.


To promote a safe environment for pupils, our selection and recruitment policy includes all checks on staff and regular volunteers’ suitability, including Disclosure and Barring Service Checks, as recommended by Buckinghamshire County Council in accordance with current legislation.


In accordance with our responsibilities under section 175/157 of the Education Act 2002 and “Keeping Children Safe in Education” 2021, we have a Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection (Mrs Morris) and an additional Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection (Miss Moore) who have received appropriate training for this role. It is their responsibility to ensure that all staff in contact with children receive child protection awareness training on a regular basis.


On rare occasions, our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies.  Unless it is not safe for a child, we would always aim to achieve this with a parent's consent.  The procedures, which we follow, have been laid down by the Local Safeguarding Children's Board, and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this for the safety of all.  If you want to know more about our procedures, please speak contact the school office.


If you have a concern about a child please contact Mrs J Morris or Miss J. Moore, via the School Office on 01844 346 189 or alternatively if out of school hours, weekends or holidays click on the button to the right.
