Limpsfield C.E. Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and requires all staff, parents, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment. The safety and well-being of all children is of the highest priority in all aspects of the school’s work. We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school. All concerns are passed through trained designated members of staff responsible for safeguarding and child protection.
Every member of staff must attend training, to which governors will also be invited. Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy is available for parents to view in the policy section of our website or via the school office.
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 share concerns about our pupils with the child’s parents/carers unless we have reason to believe that such a move would not be in the child’s best interest.
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Hudson-Headteacher

Anyone who has concerns about the well-being of a child must report those concerns immediately to the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead, either directly or via the school office.
If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff then you should report this to one of the DSLs in confidence. If the concern relates to the DSL, concerns should be reported to the Chair of Governors.
