Safeguarding at St Michael's CE Primary School


At St Michael's CE Primary School, we take safeguarding seriously and have a number of measures in place to ensure the safety of all our children and staff, some of which are listed in this section in policies and procedures. Please also see our Parent Safeguarding Leaflet to read more about what we do to keep our children safe and for more information on who to call if you have a concern about a child.


All staff, employed at St Michael's C of E Primary School, undertake accredited Level 1 Safeguarding Training annually and undertake annual training in Keeping Children Safe in Education. As per statutory procedure, all employees also complete Prevent Training every two years and our designated safeguarding leads undertake Level 2 and 3 Safeguarding Training. In addition to this, as part of their CPD, all staff complete other relevant training, relating to safeguarding and child protection, at regular intervals throughout the year. Safer Recruitment Training is also undertaken by the head teacher and nominated governors to ensure that our recruitment process keeps our children safe.
