Poplars Community Primary 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 Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the policies section on our website.
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 parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Cunningham and our alternate safeguarding leads are Mrs Hurren and Ms Brown. The Governor with overall responsibility for safeguarding is Mrs Halliday.
If you are worried about a child's safety please do not hesitate to contact us via telephone: 01502 565757 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Below are a number of links that are full of helpful tips and advice to safeguard you and your children.
We provide services that can be accessed at a time and place that suits families to help them to do well, stay safe and resolve problems at the earliest possible opportunity, before they become more serious.
Early Help means taking action to support a child, young person or their family early in the life of a problem or as soon as it emerges.
The help can be required at any stage in a child's life, whether it's from pre-birth to adulthood. It applies equally to safeguarding or complex needs that the family cannot deal with, or meet on their own.
