Long Lawford Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare.  Concerns will be discussed with parents / carers first unless we have reason to believe such a move would be contrary to a child's welfare.

Our Lead Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs N Hetherington (deputy head teacher).  She is assisted in this role by 3 other deputy DSLs: Mrs J McSweeney, Mrs C Bird and Mrs C Stringer.

Our procedures for keeping children safe are set out in our Child Protection and Safeguarding policy, which can be viewed by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

Online Safety

Online Safety is an important part of safeguarding and we want to ensure that all students and staff at Long Lawford School are responsible online citizens both in and out of school. Everyone is encouraged to do what they can to make the Internet a better place and to make sure they keep themselves safe when using the Internet, particularly when using games, apps and websites which allow social interaction.

We also want to make sure that all pupils are accessing content and playing games which are age appropriate and ask for the help of parents with this.

Some of our students have made videos to remind everyone about how important it is to keep safe online. You can watch the videos here.
