Safeguarding at Farne Primary School

Farne Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


This means that we have a Safeguarding Child Protection Policy and procedures in place, which we refer to in our prospectus. All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. Parents and carers are welcome to read the Policy on request.


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare.


Our Designated Person(s) are:


Lee Gallon (Lead) Executive Head Teacher

Mark Dixon (Lead) Deputy Head Teacher

Kimberley Jewers (Family and Attendance Welfare Officer)

Jane Thompson (SENDco)



If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversation heard, and report to one of the Designated Persons as soon as possible the same day. Do NOT conduct your own investigation.
