Safeguarding our children

Senior designated member of staff for Safeguarding  -  Miss D Liddle

Alternate SDP  -  Mr J Wilkinson

Governor for Safeguarding  -  Mr S Cozens

The law requires Headteachers to report any obvious or suspected child abuse. This includes non accidental injury, physical neglect, emotional and or sexual abuse. Headteachers and staff are charged with the duty of reporting whatever their views of the likelihood of abuse.  This procedure is intended to protect our children, and school takes the attitude that when there are any suspicions, it is better to be safe than sorry.  At times, this does mean that Headteachers risk upsetting some parents by reporting a case that after investigation was proved to be unfounded, but it is hoped that parents will understand how difficult it is for Headteachers to carry out this delicate task, and that they act only in the best interests of the children in their care.

 

Governors

THE ROLE OF THE GOVERNORS

As a member of the Ely Diocese Multi Academy Trust the school is governed by the members of the DEMAT Board. The scheme of delegation outlines the responsibility of the Local Governing Body whose current members are listed below.

Local Governing Body take overall policy decisions about how the school is run. They meet once each half term, occasionally more often. The Local Governing Body meets all requirements regarding

Statutory Policies, all of which can be obtained from the school office on request.  These include the school policies on Safeguarding and Child Protection, Sex and Health Education, and Accessibility and Disability Discrimination.

The Local Governing Body operates a system of committees to make

 it easier to deal with some things in greater detail.  These

are for Finance, Curriculum, Personnel and Premises. We also have a committee of Governors who focus on the Spiritual and Christian development of our children. Committees also meet each half term.  

School Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities for the school buildings, staff and pupils.  They work together

and they cannot act individually.

 

When complete the Local Governing Body is constituted as follows; Head Teacher, Ex-Officio, two elected staff members, two elected parent members and up to eight other Governors.

 

 The Local Governing Body of both Anthony Curton and Tilney All Saints is a joint Local Governing body. Request to view or obtain copies of minutes of the Local Governing Body meetings should be made to the Clerk to Governors (Stella Kaye) via the school office. A small fee may be charged to cover costs if a large number of copies are requested.
