Woodgate Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people 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 commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed here.
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 be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Sarah Neller (Headteacher).
Our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Jenny Bird, Mrs Ruth Whaley and Mrs Pippa Quy
The Governor with responsibility for safeguarding in our school in Jon Brydon.
