Safe Guarding & Child Protection Policy
Leamington Lamp is committed to the welfare and safeguarding of all children and young people.
"Under the Education Act 2002 (Section 175), schools must make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children". Parents/carers should know that the law (Children Act 1989) requires all school staff to pass on information which gives rise to a concern about a child’s welfare, including risk from neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse. The staff will seek, in general, to discuss any concerns with the parent/carer and, where possible, seek their consent to a referral to Social Care. This will only be done where such discussion will not place the child at increased risk of significant harm. Schools will seek advice from Social Care when they have reasonable cause to suspect a child may be suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.
Leamington Lamp’s safeguarding arrangements are inspected by WCC under the judgements for leadership & management and also impact the judgement on the personal development, behaviour and welfare of children and learners.
