Safeguarding

At CGS, the health and safety and well-being of every child underpins every aspect of school life.  We isten to our students and take seriously what they tell us.  Our aim is for children to enjoy their time as students in this school.  We want to work in partnership with parents to help your child achieve thei full potential and make a positive contribution.

 

To promote a safe environment for students, our selection and recruitment policy includes all checks on staff and regular volunteers' suitability, inlcuding Disclosure and Barring Service checks, as recommended by Buckinghamshire County Council in accordance withcurrent legisation.

 

in accordance with our responsibilites under section 175/157 of the Education Act 2002 and "Keeping Children Safe in Education" September 2016, we have a Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection, Jill Henderson who is a member of the Senior Leadership Team, (supported by Justine Cox and Elizabeth Snell) and has received appropriate training for this role.  It is her responsibility to ensure that all staff in contact with children receive Child Protection awareness training on a regular basis.

 

If a situation arises when our concern about a child means we have to consult other agencies, whilst we would always aim to work in partnership with parents there may be exceptions to this when concerns are raised for the protection of a child.

 

The CGS Safeguarding Team, responsible for Safeguarding and Child Protection, is led by Jill Henderson Deputy Head, with two Deputies, Elizabeth Snell and Justine Cox. 

The Safeguarding Governor is Francis Sanger.
