Safeguarding at The Primrose Centre
Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our pupils. We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and young people within our school community. We work closely with parents/carers and a range of professional external agencies to secure this. We have a Child Protection/Safeguarding Policy which can be accessed below. A copy of the document is also available from the school office.
Our school Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Rachel Kelly. If you have any concerns please come and speak with her.
We also have a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Paula Hale, Deputy Headteacher.
