Safeguarding at Delaware Primary Academy
Our school community has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This means that we have a child protection policy and procedures in place. All staff including our volunteers and supply staff must ensure they are aware of our procedures. Parents and carers are welcome to read these on request, please ask at 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 always ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with the parents/ carers first unless we have reason to believe that this is not in the child’s best interests.
Our school works in conjunction with Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and is part of Operation Encompass- you can read more about this in the letter below.
