Barton Junior School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of website https://www.bartonjuniorschool.org/policies/.
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 with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism .
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss. O'Dell (Head of School). We also have two Deputy Designated Safeguarding Officers; Mrs Knight (Assistant Principal) and Miss McConnell (Pupil and Parent Support Officer)
