Safeguarding & Wellbeing

All adults working at St Paul's CE Primary (including visitors and volunteers) have a responsibilty to report concerns where they believe a child may be at immediate risk of harm or neglect to the Designated Safeguarding Team. All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to appropriately. This information will be dealt with as confidentially as possible and made known to only those staff who need to know.  

Whilst school deal with child protection concerns sensitively and with care, we have a legal responsibilty to report such allegations to Social Services and/or the police and we follow the procedures set out by Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority. 


At St Paul's CE Primary, we are passionate about ensuring children in our school are nutured, listened to and protected from harm. We take very seriously our responsbility to protect and safeguard the children in our care. We maintain safety by:

  • Everybody having a duty to safeguard children in and outside of the school environment. 
  • Involving parents/ carers and providing advice and guidance regarding safeguarding. 
  • Maintaining a child focus and listening to children. 
  • Recognising signs and concerns, particuarly with children who may be vulnerable. 
  • Documenting and collating information on individual children to support early identification referral and actions to safeguard. 
  • Taking appropriate actions to address concerns about a child's welfare in partnership with other organisations and safeguarding agencies.
